People today are virtualizing servers just for the sake of virtualizing. I started playing. I have an old Server laying around. E3-1230, 16GB memory, Adaptec 6405 controller with three new Seagate 7200rpm SAS drives in a RAID 5 configuration. It is dated but not a real slouch. So I installed Server 2019 Standard the installed it again as a VM and migrated my Server 2012 to it. First thing I noticed on my workstation was that things were running slower. Not to a dead stop but noticeably slower.

   So what the heck. I virtualized a Windows 10 Professional workstation. It doesn't do much but it is so slow doing everything it is painful. I would kill myself if I had to user it every day. Between the virtualized server and workstation I have to be doing something wrong. They just shouldn't be that slow what what I have heard. Both are Hyper-V. I have to be missing a basic setting. Any general help or guidelines on what I could be missing?
