The new Hyper-v has some nice additional features as the previous poster mentioned.

Some Recommendations would be to look at Replicas. This is a new feature in terms of Hyper-v High Availability where you can replicate your virtual machines to an off site location.

Also in terms of your SAN you use you can now make use of the SAN to move data as opposed to the OS (Offload data migration). You should look if your SAN is supported and update its firmware if it is.

Another Consideration is NIC teaming is now built into the OS. So you no longer have to make use of a third party software. So in planning you should consider how you can best make use of this.

Another Nice feature is the ability to give full control of a NIC to a virtual machine (No Virtual Switch, the Host doesnt even see the NIC anymore). single root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) needs to be supported by the NIC in order for this to take place.

Issues would more be around learning  a new interface and getting used to having the ability to manage everything centrally.

Yes, we've completed many implementations, ise Shared Storage and you can then use Live Migration and High Availability between nodes, if you are using more than a single server.

Use Datacenter version to save you money on VM Licenses.
