Microsoft SVVP Overview 

Microsoft launched the Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP) to improve customers' support experiences when running Windows Server operating systems on virtualization technologies. This validation program is open to vendors that deliver machine virtualization products and have customers that run Windows Server-based workloads in their virtualization environment. Customers can benefit from the regular Windows Server technical support provided by Microsoft when running currently supported versions of Windows Server on validated machine virtualization solutions. All testing for this program is done by the virtualization product vendors, with the results of that testing submitted to Microsoft for review and approval.
