Q: Can System Center 2012 manage the free Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 hypervisor solution?
A: Yes. Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012, which is the free Microsoft hypervisor download that uses the same technology as Windows Server, can be managed through System Center. This means you can use Virtual Machine Manager with it and all the other components of System Center. A single System Center 2012 deployment can manage a mix of Microsoft Hyper-V Servers and full Windows Servers.
