What is a Hypervisor
: Brief summary of how a virtual machine hypervisor relates to its hardware, and of upcoming hardware support. "Intel and AMD are both working on providing full Hypervisor support at the CPU level, introducing a new CPU Ring (-1), with respective project codenames "Vanderpool
" and "Pacifica
". A thin layer of Windows virtualization technology will move to execute at Hypervisor CPU Ring -1 to take full advantage of hardware innovations from Intel and AMD." 2:37:46 PM
