comment Restoring a VM from a backed up snapshot in Windows Server 2008R2
I think that you missed my point a little. Even in Server 2008R2, when you ask for a backup of a VM (which very much does exist as a feature) what it actually does is create a snapshot of the VM and then allow you to copy that snapshot to other media. It just doesn't label it a "snapshot." It's labeled as a "backup."

And why are you creating a new partition when you do extend the disk, rather than just extending an existing file system?

comment How to exclude VHDX disk from snapshots on Hyper-v
No. While the VM is powered off, there is no memory assigned to it. Of course, if your VM is powered off, then the file systems have been shut down cleanly and there's no danger of corruption. If you wanted to exclude a VHD from a snapshot while the VM was powered off, you could remove it, take the snapshot, and re-add it. (I know that you'd like that to be one step, but I don't have a better suggestion. It would be a single line of PowerShell code if that's any condolence.)

Those are tiny. I doubt that you'd see much difference.

comment Windows Server 2012 Hyper V Clustering Live migration Hot Failover
There are actually several commercial products that do exactly what you're saying isn't possible. They work by, essentially, continuously migrating the machine to a new host, so that if the primary host fails, the secondary can pick up where the first left off. See the various offerings from Stratus for good examples of this.
