Can I virtualize a box with HYPER-V to host windows & linux O/S on different nodes?
I am planning to buy a big dedicated server and virtualize it to sell linux and windows vps on the same box. Is it possible using Hyper-V virtualization?

Windows VPS Plans are powered by Windows Server 2008 and virtualized using Microsoft's Hyper-V technology, the leading choice for Windows Virtual Private Servers.
* It uses an architecture with a bus structure, which ensures that the one-to-one communication between the guest machines and the parent machines happens very efficiently and very safely.
* It is safer because every guest virtual machine is running its own instance of the operating system.
* It is safer because the virtualization is built into Windows Server 2008, which was especially designed for this.
* It offers complete autonomy because every virtual machine can have its own safety policy and own patch management, specifically for the application that is running on that server.
Yeah, we use, same Hyper-V tech. it surely helps to handle clients in clouded environment, where dedicated server needs are balanced for clients at minimal source, cost.
Surely, this is more effective than other environment, I prefer it over Virtuozzo. OpenVZ
Hyper-V is a application invented by Microsoft and can only be used for Windows OS. Hyper-V is not compatible with Linux OS. If you wish to use a Hardware Virtualization for Linux also, you can use VM-ware. VM-Ware is compatible with both Windows and Linux OS.
