Hyper-V Review

A good product for hosting corporate infrastructure servers

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to host our corporate infrastructure servers. 

What needs improvement?

The only issues we have had recently are with Windows updates that are built into the Windows server with Hyper-V. 

In the future, I would like to see a simplification of licensing of this product. In addition, I think it would be beneficial to have more monitoring.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable. We have not had issues with it crashing itself.

How is customer service and technical support?

I do not have experience with the technical support. I usually research the answers myself and fix any pending issues.

How was the initial setup?

It was very straightforward for us. We did it in-house and it was very easy.

What was our ROI?

We have definitely have seen a return on our investment. 

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

I wish the licensing was simpler and allowed for a greater number of VMs with the Microsoft standard licensing. Overall I think it's fair. The pricing is definitely fair.
