Virtualization Hyper V vs Vmware
Posted on 2015-01-15
Over the past few years we have been implementing VmWare ESXi solutions for customers however I keep being approached by suppliers with solutions running Windows Server Hyper V 2012.
I have a customer who I am about to propose a new virtual environment, they currently have 2 ESXi servers running 6 VMs and a few physical servers.
I am going through the process of putting a solution to move the complete environment and some additional servers to virtual servers and the costs of proposing Windows Hyper V over VMWare have really stopped me in my tracks. We will end up with approx 15-20 virtual machines but I want to make sure I select the correct Hyper visor solution
We don't have much experience with Hyper V 2012, has anyone migrating from VMWare? Is VMWare still the virtualization leader or should I start looking at Hyper V as a creditable alternative? I am looking at a solution with a SAN and a couple of host machines.
