Subject Re: Windows on KVM - Windows profile with PV drivers vs Other PV?
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2019 11:11:13 GMT
No problem - just don't run (busy) Windows Server 2008 R2 or older without
Hyper-V Enlightenments   - Simon found that bringing a bit of performance
benefits were important (and of course it is), but for me (in my previous
job role), I found more important things being the stability brought for
Windows Server 2008 R2 (lot's of those) - which was doing crazy amount of
BSOD on busy servers.

Anyhow, good thing to have.
