Increased number of virtual machines supported in a cluster [Hyper-V R2]



When we released Windows Server 2008 R2 we stated that we would support up to 384 virtual machines running on a single instance of Hyper-V – but only up to 64 virtual machines running on a node of a cluster.

Last week we announced that we now support up to 384 virtual machines running on a node of a cluster – as long as the total number of running virtual machines in the cluster does not exceed 1000.
