Hyper-V Review

Low price for a hyper-virtualized environment

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution for some of my virtual machines.

How has it helped my organization?

It allowed us to add on servers and fix things in an expedient manner.

What is most valuable?

I find the hardware and the cost reduction most valuable.

What needs improvement?

The backup has room for improvement. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a pretty stable solution. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not scaled it because I am not running it in a cluster environment anymore. I do know that the clusters work and that Hyper-V can easily scale for an organization's greater needs.

How is customer service and technical support?

Microsoft tech support is horrible.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It took a day to deploy. 

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

The Hyper-V pricing and licensing are very good. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I looked at Hyper-V vs AHV, which is a Nutanix product. Nutanix Acropolis is a hyperconverged product that does a lot of next-level type of virtualization software
