Our plan to buy VMware host server + 5 Vm licsense and if we go with Hyper-V our plan will be Win 2008 Hyper-V host server + 5 Vm licsense, I heard somewhere it  is free with Hyper-V But I'm not sure if this are true or not.

Hi,
For a setup below, do you think what should be the plan of purchasing license ? This is our initial stage of configuring  VM's.
The licsensing part is the one that make me headache, this is indeed my first time dealing with purchasing license, of course I dont know much how to deal with this and what are the limitation if I wrongly buy the license.


Vm's

Our hardware will be Dell Poweredge R720, its fit for virtualization, customer is looking something can be extend in term of hardware and VM's limits.
