Both, are very good Hypervisors, e.g. VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, it really depends on your requirements, and if you have any experience of either technologies, as to which you implement.

There is also Citrix Xen to consider as well.

Could you give me more background, as to what hardware you have, will you be purchasing hardware, e.g. servers and storage (SAN or NAS).

Consider it as a solution.  There are more than two products that provide virtualization on the market.

Mr. Leew
For my knowledge Citrix Xen is to publish applications? The concept is different than vsphere and hyper-v

Citrix Xen Server is a Hypervisor!

You are confusing Xen Server with XenDesktop and XenApp!

you can use FREENAS if you are very restricted in budget

I'm actually doing just that in my home lab. FreeNAS works pretty decently as a low-end NFS datastore for VMWare.

But I would NEVER, EVER put that into a production environment for one of my clients. I just don't trust it.
