Hypervisor, free VERSION -- comparison chart ?

Does anyone have a good matrix like
http://www.heroix.com/blog/virtualization-licensing
talks about so I can compare VMWare vs Server 2012
HyperV "FREE" features, without Microsoft System Center ?
===========================================================
Example
  ** HyperV Live Migration is FREE --> VMWare vMotion is NOT FREE
  ** HyperV Failover Clustering is FREE --> VMware HA is NOT FREE
  ** etc
===========================================================
Environment
  4 physical servers
  3 VMs on each, making 12 Windows VMs total
  ** BASIC hypervisor functions
  ** no realtime Failover needed
  ** if VM called "DBTEST" on physical
     server #2 fails, I need to refresh
     from an old "DBTEST" VM backup in
     under five hours

What you need to understand, is VMware vSphere HYpervisor (ESXi), it's the same as a Windows Hyper-V 2012. (different product to Windows 2012 Server or 2012 R2 Server).

Both products are FREE, no money exchanges hands to anyone, Registration is required for a License for VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi).

Windows 2012 Server or 2012 R2 Server must be purchased, and includes the Hyper-V Role.

When you purchase Windows 2012 Server or 2012 R2 Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2, this is the equivalent of VMware vSphere (which is a license for 3 x 2 CPU Host Licenses for ESXi, and vCenter Server).

SCVMM 2012 R2 is equivalent to VMware vSphere vCenter Server.

without SCVMM, you can build HA, Live Migration, but it's easier with SCVMM.

Hyper-V or VMware will be suitable for your requirements, with a backup product

e.g. Veeam Backup and Replication.
