Hyper-V Pros and Cons

Hyper-V Pros

Liam Lynch
Owner at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
It is actually very low on resources. It doesn't use many resources. It is also very easy to tailor. You can change things like the amount of memory and storage on the fly. It is very stable and reliable. I like its replication feature, which is very good. It is also very easy to move the virtual machines across push servers without any difficulty. Its performance is also very good. Now with this pandemic, a lot of workers are working from home. A lot of workers have been using laptops as their desktop computers, and they would remote into a virtual PC. There is no difficulty, and they can't tell the difference between this and the real one. It is much easier to manage.

The most valuable feature is being able to do checkpoints then roll back to the checkpoint because that's what we need to test the software. We're testing the installation and then we roll it back and retest it.

Hyper-V Cons

Liam Lynch
Owner at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The Hyper-V management console could be improved to make it easier. It should be a little bit more granular. Various virtual switches could also be improved to make virtual desk management slightly better. The replication could be improved slightly. The checkpoints or snapshots could be improved to make it a bit more transparent to the user.

It would be nice if they provided a free management console that we could use to manage all of the hosts for no additional fee.

It would be nice if they had video acceleration, they got rid of that and VMware has video acceleration.
