Microsoft Previews Windows 10 Nested Virtualization Using AMD Chips

Microsoft this week announced a preview of nested virtualization on Windows 10 machines using AMD processors. Nested virtualization entails running a Hyper-V hypervisor within a Hyper-V-based virtual machine, according to Microsoft's definition in this document. Nested virtualization is the kind of thing that might be used when "testing configurations that ordinarily require several hosts," it added. IT pros might use nested virtualization to create lab environments or to use Hyper-V containers. "If you want to use a Hyper-V Containers inside a VM, you guessed it: this is enabled with Nested Virtualization," Microsoft's announcement indicated.
