Last time I wrote a review on Hyper V for 2008 R2, which is the product I was using at the time. Having had experience with Hyper V "3.0", the version included in 2012, I figured it was time to update my review. Pro's Hyper-V definitely has its pros! - This version of Hyper-V is even more in d… more »

Hyper-V has made great strides since it was first released alongside Windows 2008. If I were a SMB/small enterprise running mostly a Windows shop and looking into virtualization, I would definitely give it a serious look - it can do most everything I would need for a lot less than vSphere.

One thing that I haven't seen mentioned yet and would just like to point out is Microsoft lacking to have a true cluster file system.

Pros: Hyper-V definitely has its pro's, some of which are painfully apparent. - The first one is that it is a Microsoft product, which is baked into its Server 2008 and 2008 R2 platforms. You also have the option of a Hyper-V server core, which is only the Hypervisor (this allows for more reso… more »
