Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
I think the cluster environment is a good feature of Hyper-V because, if something happens, then it will automatically move to some other mode. This is a great feature of the solution.
The setup was straightforward and easy for our company. The deployment was fast.
It is easy to use, and it is stable. It is a good solution.
It utilizes the hardware so there are multiple applications running on one hypervisor.
It is a stable product.
It allowed us to add on servers and fix things in an expedient manner.
I think all of these improvements are going in a good direction. For me, its direction is good and I'm very satisfied with this product.
The flexibility and API are the most valuable features. It helps us be able to integrate with other systems and then push data easily.
I have found this product excellent for test/dev environments. This is 90% of what I use this product for.
Sometimes it is a mess, and it is getting hanged. It should be something that could be easily fixed. It made us have to deal with fixing the bugs.
In my opinion, read the documentation carefully. If you do not, you will have problems.
I think there is room for improvement in terms of the cloud solutions.
There are bugs, and this should be resolved by Microsoft.
Microsoft tech support is horrible.
I am using this solution with E-Notes. I heard that there will be future improvements in integration of the E-notes systems. This would be very helpful.
The interface could be more user friendly. In addition, the documentation and security could use improvement.
It needs to improve compatibility with third party software.
I have had issues with the virtual network adapters in the past that has taken some time to troubleshoot.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is not much. We have a very big environment, and pricing is no problem.
The pricing and licensing is pretty good.
I think it is expensive. I think if they want it to be more competitive, they should lower the price.
The pricing and licensing is fine.
The Hyper-V pricing and licensing are very good.
We previously used VMware, but we switched because Hyper-V is cheaper and delivers the same stability for less money.
The pricing is not an issue for us because we have a licensing agreement with Microsoft. So we are given an 80% discount.
I do not have experience with pricing or licensing of the product.
The pricing is a bit steep in my opinion for testing and there are other options.

Hyper-V is a native hypervisor for x86-64 systems, enabling platform virtualization. It is a Microsoft product that comes in two forms. One form is Hyper-V as a standalone product, known as Hyper-V Server (Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 is the latest version). The other form is as a role to be installed in Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, or the x64 version of Window 8 Pro. No matter what form it takes, Hyper-V gives you the services and tools required to create a virtualized server environment.
Hyper-V creates a cost-effective, stable and productive server virtualization environment by running multiple operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, and more, in parallel on one server.
Some of the business benefits of installing Hyper-V include:
