Hyper-V Review

Easy to set up and deploy, but the virtual network manager could be improved

What is our primary use case?

We are just exploring the possibilities to see if it was a better alternative to VirtualBox, for running on a Windows host.

What needs improvement?

I think the setup for the Virtual Network Manager could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have only just started using this solution. It's been one to two weeks.

I am using the version with Windows 10 Pro.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's too early to tell at the moment. We are still new to using Hyper-V.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not yet explored this area. At the moment, I am the only user.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I am currently using VirtualBox and Hyper-V on different VMs.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It was easy to install.

It took an hour to get the on-premises system running.

What about the implementation team?

I completed the setup and implementation.

What other advice do I have?

It's still too early to know if I would recommend it or not.

I am still in the processing phase, so depending on how it goes, we may continue to use this solution. At this point, we intend to use it.

With what I know so far, I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
