Hyper-V Benefits

Morne' O'Kennedy
Lead specialist at OKCIUS (Pty) Ltd
Hyper-V improved the infrastructure drastically, not only from a performance perspective but from a control/administration view as well. This directly affects the products and services offered on the platform. Our customers can increase or decrease resources on their workloads at any given time, which means we give them more control. That positively affects costs, reducing them for the customers. View full review »

We can perform maintenance on equipment during the day because we can live migrate all of the machines from server A to server B, and then work on server A. This saves us a lot of time. It used to require working after hours for us to do this. View full review »

There is an ease of use, and it is able to deploy it because there are people throughout my country of South Africa that all understand Microsoft. They can easily fire up a virtual environment because they are familiar with Microsoft. View full review »

It makes it easier to deploy services. All services tend to migrate onto the server house without having problems now. It is hardware independent. View full review »

We use it for testing new software. We especially use it for software updates because half of the time we're running an accounting program. It updates, and then breaks something else. This way we can run a couple of different VM's with a setup similar to what we use on all of the desktops. So, that way, you can test it without actually causing downtime. Some of the things we run have to have a very specific Linux bistro, and you can't get it all in Hyper-V. View full review »
