Key features that should be of interest to Hyper-V users are:

  • Protection of Live Migration-enabled servers running on CSV in Hyper-V R2

  • Flexibility to protect virtual machines from Windows guests or from the hypervisor host

  • Host-based backups will now enable single-item restores from within the VHD

  • Ability to restore virtual machines to an alternative host
