Q. I heard Microsoft recently increased the number of supported virtual machines (VMs) per clustered Hyper-V node. Is this true?

A. Yes, it's true. Previously, Microsoft supported 32 VMs per clustered Hyper-V server if they're running server workloads and 64 VMs per clustered node in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) scenarios. The new guidance is 64 for both server workloads and VDI workloads. This is only a change in support policy—there hasn't been a change to Hyper-V.
