At a recent CANITPRO camp, questions were asked in regards to the running of labs provided amidst the camp and online on the CANITPRO.NET blog. In the plethora of ways detailed back to the audience, the one that resonated loudest was the ability to natively run Hyper-V sessions within Windows 8.1 itself. Virtual Machines are great for running different operating systems or software configurations on a single machine and many other additional tasks. The launch of the Windows 8 offering was the first Windows client operating system to include hardware virtualization support without the need for separate installs or downloads. The Hyper-V client found in Windows 8 is the same technology used in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V allowing IT professionals to move VMs from server to client without the requirement to re-learn the use of Hyper-V features and tools. In Windows 8.1 further enhancements to the Client Hyper-V were introduced. The most notable update called Enhanced Session Mode enables high fidelity graphics for connections to VM's using the RDP protocol. In addition USB redirection is also enabled from the host to VM's. Step 1: Prerequisites

Srini - Ensuring that you have the proper 64-bit system that has Second Level Address Translation (SLAT) enabled, the only real limitation is the amount of RAM for running VMs and/or disk space for installing OSes. To add, Windows 8.1 offers no "free" OS instances. For each Windows OS based VM you install, you need to provide and assign that Windows license to that particular VM.
You can however run a virtualized evaluation of software for the allotted time it provides via Hyper-V on Windows 8.1. Hope that answers your question.
