Virtualization is made simple with Hyper-V

It has been a superb environment for the virtualization of our infrastructure. We have gone from many separate, stand-alone servers to primarily virtual machine based servers without any problems. We have reduced hardware costs, allowed much easier scale-ability, and provided more comprehensive b...

      We chose Hyper-V to create our virtual infrastructure for our on premise servers. Our current hardware was at end of life and had the opportunity to upgrade to newer hardware and have enough space for more servers.

        A good example of the scenarios where vSphere is well suited is when the customer requires strong encryption, especially after the changes in the EU for security. This, added in NSX, combined with the ability to have encrypted VMotion as well, has been great. It is also great if you need to run t...

          We utilize Citrix Hypervisor as our sole hypervisor in our entire Citrix environment. This has helped us reduce our hardware expenses by over 75% with virtualizing all of our production servers. We were on a 3 year replacement plan when we had physical production servers but now we get 5-7 years ...

            Hyper-V was used across the enterprise at my previous job. It consisted of a three-host cluster with over 1TB ram and 200TB of production storage. It also included over 200 VMs running Windows Server 2016 RD Datacenter.

              VMware ESXi The best Virtual Host!

              VMware ESXi is being used as the primary platform to host our applications servers. We are currently using 3 hosts in a cluster with roughly 25 Microsoft/Linux VMs. VMware allows us to reduce physical hardware and electrical costs, as well as giving us ease of access to our environment.

                VMWare ESXi simplifies the backup process and management of our server environment. The cost savings in hardware (space and number of servers) and power consumption is worth the upfront cost.

                  We're a small IT operation in the higher education industry. We use Hyper-V as our primary production-grade virtualization tool. While it may not be as feature-packed as other options, it does what we need. At the end of the day we're just trying to virtualize infrastructure, and do not even need...

                      Citrix Hypervisor is a perfect virtualization solution which allows many functions, among which scalability has the main function. The architecture offers a combination of remote desktop services and web interface servers. Implementation and change management are complex. The cost is very good. T...

                        I've always had good success with Hyper-V. Since we moved to Windows 2016, we have had issues with Windows updates taking hours to install. The server will sit at "please wait," while updates are installed for hours. It used to be minutes with Windows 2012R2. As a result, updating our Hyper-V ser...

                            We have not needed to expand the data center even though the total number of servers has doubled. We were able to add 2 additional hosts in VMware ESXi to cover the load instead of having to add 37 physical servers.

                              Hyper-V has been a very reliable hypervisor for use in an IT organization. It's free, well documented, and powerful. Where it may fall short is in a Linux shop, where existing tools and skills would be better spent on a nix hypervisor. Virtual networking support on Hyper-V is also not as advanced...

                                      Hyper-V is powerful and well integrated with Windows, albeit not the easiest or fastest virtualization software out there.
