Check out the Server & Cloud Blog on TechNet where it shows impressive performance and scalability with the latest version of Hyper-V where there is support for up to 64 vCPUs, 1 TB of memory for VMs, and a new VHDX format supporting disk capacity up to 64 TB.

The key findings from ESG Labs were:

  • With Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V’s new support for up to 64 vCPUs, ESG Lab took an existing SQL Server 2012 OLTP workload that was previously vCPU limited and increased the performance by six times, while the average transaction response times improved by five times. 
  • Manageably-low Hyper-V overhead of 6.3% was recorded when comparing SQL Server 2012 OLTP workload performance of a physical server to a virtual machine configured with the same number of virtual CPU cores and the same amount of RAM.
