Microsoft HyperV or Vmware ESX Server???
Posted on 2008-11-12
I am going to buy a new server on which I want to host my SharePoint, SQL and Domain Controller as individual virtualized servers and I'm looking for some advice.
I have used Vmware server, workstation and fusion extensively and very much like the product. Their ESX product looks fantastic, but it's expensive.
I've also heard about Windows Server 2008 with Hyper V which is supposedly MSFT's virtualization product.
Essentially what I want is:
*The ability to virtualize all my servers so they can be migrated to new physical hardware in the future with minmal fuss
*The ability to plug-in or add (cluster?) additional physical hardware (to provide more "grunt" to the virtualized servers) without hassle
I would appreciate impartial advice or reccomendations you could give me on
