Active Directory, Hyper-V, and PowerShell: Explained
Active Directory, or AD, is a Microsoft directory service that is included in most Windows Server operating systems. The central aspect of AD is the domain controller, which is any server running Active Directory Domain Service. All users and computers in a Windows domain network are authenticated and authorized by domain controllers. Additionally, AD assigns and enforces security policies, governs information management and storage, and establishes the framework required to deploy all other related services.
Prior to its release, Microsoft Hyper-V was known as Windows Server Virtualization. It is a native hypervisor that can create virtual machines on Windows systems, starting with Windows 8. Admins can configure any server running Hyper-V to expose individual virtual machines to various networks.
PowerShell is Microsoft's configuration management and task automation framework. It consists of a command-line shell and scripting language. Although it was introduced as a Windows component exclusively, Microsoft eventually made it open-source and cross-platform.
