Windows Server 2016 Hyper-v Checkpoints

Differences between Hyper-v checkpoints

 

Production Checkpoints

 

Point in time images, using backup technology inside the guest ( Volume shadow copy  / File System Freeze ).

Reliable for production environments.

It doesn’t save the memory state

This now default config  on all Windows Server 2016 VM’s on Hyper-v 

Standard Checkpoint 

Saves the memory state of all running applications, not just the state of the virtual machine. Mostly used for test scenarios.

Not reliable for production roles as SQL, Exchange, Active Directory.

You can check all the checkings on every VM in case that you may want change to standard mode for testing purposes ( properties of the VM, management, checkpoints )
