Hyper-V Review

Increases memory for virtual machines with ease

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case of this solution is to increase memory for the virtual machine which can be easily done on Hyper-V.

What needs improvement?

Hyper-V is hosted on OS but if your OS scratches you are in big trouble. In addition, if a host fails, automatically the machine and the virtual machine should boot from another source. Those type of features would benefit Hyper-V.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable product.

How is customer service and technical support?

We haven't had a need for technical support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

In comparison to VMware, Hyper-V is much better at restoration and backup. It is also much faster than VMware. 

How was the initial setup?

The setup was quite straightforward. It took 15-20 minutes to deploy. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I do not have experience with the licensing of the product.

What other advice do I have?

It is definitely the toughest competitor for VMware. There is room for improvement for automation. If that was implemented, it would place Hyper-V on the same realm as VMware.
