Hyper-V Review

Has a fair price and is a good solution

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use it for server virtualization and protection services.

How has it helped my organization?

Using cluster with Hyper-V had a major impact on our protection environment. So all applications were virtualized using Hyper-V.

What needs improvement?

Perhaps improvement should be made when you want to change some configuration on VM's, and you have to shut down the VM in order to do so. A major improvement would be a configuration change. So, when you change the parameter of VM, the other one can still be running.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is stable. We have had no problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good. It is enough for our needs. We are 40 users in our organization. We used a team of five to maintain the solution. 

How is customer service and technical support?

We have not needed technical support.

What was our ROI?

For our company it was a good investment.

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

The price is quite fair. It is not too expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were looking at other options, such as Azure. But, we decided to stay with the Microsoft Hyper-V.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise other people that this is a good solution.
