Overall Satisfaction with Hyper-V

Hyper-V is a very cost effective and useful hypervisor. Features like replication and live migration give Hyper-V great disaster recovery or replication options for small to medium size businesses without the need to purchase much more expensive solutions like VMware. Migration from physical servers to Hyper-V VMs is very easy using many off the self products from multiple vendors.
  • Virtualize resources, all for one physical server to host many Virtual Machines
  • Provide easy disaster recovery and replication
  • Very very cost effective.
  • Scaling for large environments. No comparable solution to VMWares vCenter.
  • Failover of a VM to more than one host is limited.
  • Scale
  • Disaster recovery
  • Ease of use
  • Low cost.
  • Low cost
  • Easy virtualization deployment
  • Great security.
Hyper-V is much cheaper and does not have the license requirement of VMware. Hyper-V is not a product that scales like VMware and not well suited to a large datacenter.

Very well suited to small to mid size businesses. Great tools for replication and failover. Easy to implement using existing Microsoft technologies. No need for extensive training if the engineer is well versed with the Microsoft product stack.
