Where is My Datastore in Hyper-V?

Production-proven Mesosphere DC/OS is now even better with GPU scheduling, pods, troubleshooting, enhanced security, and over 100+ integrated services deployed in one-click.

Did you know that Hyper-V Server is free, and yet fully supports every bit of Hyper-V goodness, scale, performance, high-availability...etc?!

The term 'datastore’ is one that many of you who work with VMware are familiar, but which doesn’t really translate to the world of Microsoft’s Hyper-V.  “Since Hyper-V does not require a different formatting of the underlying physical disk structure like VMFS(VMware’s proprietary disk format) we are able to browse the ‘datastore’ with File Explorer(In Windows 8/Server 2012…formerly known as Windows Explorer).”

“Who said that?”

That quote was from my friend Tommy Patterson, who writes about datastores and how they compare to the file system structures used in Hyper-V in Part 4 of our “20+ Days of Server Virtualization” series.  In his article he describes the locations of the various components that define and make up a Hyper-V virtual machine, and even provides a script to help you quickly locate filesystem locations for your virtual machine bits.

Simply build, test, and deploy. Mesosphere DC/OS is the best way to run containers and big data anywhere offering production-proven flexibility and reliability.
