With the virtualization what we could achieve was maximum utilization of our resources. Previously we used to like have ten, fifteen physical service each one was utilized for a certain percentage and uh, not everything was utilized. I mean one service was maybe 20% utilization one was 90% utilization. So, there was no balance of utilization. With virtualization we can balance. In addition, we can be accurate at the with the solution or Hyper-V, this gives us a close decision I can move motion machines live from one physical machine to another. View full review »

I think that Hyper-V is going in a good direction and I think that the current improvements are moving Hyper-V from 2008 to 2016. 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. View full review »

The Failover Clustering feature allows us to be able to make our most critical workload highly available. We did not have to pay extra money for it. In Windows Servers 2016, there is Storage Spaces Direct. Although, it seems as if many of the local organizations where I live prefer to go for traditional SAN setups, I find Storage Spaces Direct to be very attractive, neat, and stable. We did not need to hire a separate storage expert to manage our storage as it was easy to manage and setup (many articles online). We did not have to invest a dollar more than what we paid for the server software. View full review »

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. View full review »

Hyper-V 2016 is very impressive. The virtualized applications and real-time addition of the VMA is quite a good feature, which is competitive to VMware. It's not VMware but it's close to it and is a competitor. View full review »

* Live motioning of VMs, which I consider to be a standard function. * When upgrading clusters from Windows Server 2012 to 2012 R2, we were able to live motion VMs from one cluster to another. View full review »
