What is our primary use case?
We use Hyper-V for production, testing, and development.
It's a core infrastructure solution, so it's not a user-solution. It's for server virtualization. It's actually deployed virtually for other services that need to deploy virtual machines using it.
We plan to keep using this solution in the future.
For how long have I used the solution?
I have been using this solution since 2008.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
Hyper-V is both stable and scalable; however, I also use VMware which I find to be more scalable and stable overall.
How are customer service and technical support?
The support with Microsoft is great.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
We use VMware, but Hyper-V is much cheaper; however, VMware is more robust, more scalable, more agile for us. It was a mix of both because we wanted to be able to see our way through technology skills.
How was the initial setup?
The initial setup was quite easy.
What other advice do I have?
On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of seven. If it were a little more flexible and stable, I'd give it a higher rating.
Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
