The Hyper-V role in Windows Server 2008 R2 provides you with the tools and services you can use to create a virtualized server computing environment. This virtualized environment can be used to address a variety of business goals aimed at improving efficiency and reducing costs. This type of environment is useful because you can create and manage virtual machines, which allows you to run multiple operating systems on one physical computer and isolate the operating systems from each other.
According the the release notes of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, the Hyper-V role now fully supports Live Migration of Virtual Machines using the failover clustering role, added and configured on the servers running Hyper-V.
