Hyper V as stand-alone or as role
Posted on 2011-03-24
I have been looking for another solution to virtualize my servers besides esxi..
I have come up with Hyper-V, but I see you have different ways to use this:
You have the "Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2" which is the equivalent of "Esxi 4.0" (Free)
And Server 2008 R2 Core with a Hyper-V Role Only. So you install a Server 2008 with Hyper-V as a role..
Is there a difference in performance? Which of the 2 should I use?
What is the comparison with Vmware's ESXI? Mostly in cost?
I will be using a Small Business 2011 as domain controller.
Already thanks in advance!
