Hyper-V Other Solutions Considered

I was dropped into it, so I inherited a mostly completed environment, and then I finished it. They had problems with the VMware running on their servers because they were using unsupported. It was before Dell released firmware for the controllers for the servers to stop complaining. Even though the drives were working fine, the controller was throwing a bunch of errors. Plus, that version of VMware, at that time, didn't support TRIM, so then it had problems reclaiming space and stuff like that. Then it had to go over to Windows, which under Hyper-V supported TRIM. Now, VMware does support it, so it wouldn't be an issue, but it's already converted over. It's rock solid. View full review »

We do also use VMware vSphere. But, we use Hyper-V more. Some people have different desires. Some people want a Lexus, and other people are happy with a Honda. Both are great cars, but one is a lot more expensive. View full review »

I think that Hyper-V stands in the same ranking as VMware or Oracle in terms of solutions for similar needs. View full review »

VMware has a comparable solution, but their price is too expensive for my needs. View full review »

Due to our needs, we installed Hyper-V and VMware. It would be nice if there was a link between the HYper-V and the VMware for a test environment. When we cannot keep the two together, everything becomes a problem for the site. View full review »

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

We looked at Oracle, but it did not fit our hardware, so we did not choose it. View full review »

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. View full review »
