I have a server with Hyper-V configured, it is easy to create a new virtual machine using the management tools, but it can take some time.
I often see those hosts that say "We can have your server ready in 5 seconds". And I wonder how do they manage this? I would also like to deploy a full functional clean server in 5 seconds.
So how is this done? Is it by first installing a clean server, then take a snapshot of that for later to deploy a new server based on that snapshot?
I tried doing this, but I did not find any where to install a new virtual machine based on the snapshot.
Anyone got any thoughts to share on this?
