What advice do you have for others considering Hyper-V?


If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Hyper-V, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

In my opinion, read the documentation carefully. If you do not, you will have problems.

I would advise other people that this is a good solution.

Unfortunately, due to cost, we have begun to look at other products in the market.

It is good for small installations. If you are looking to do anything fancy, this is is not a good choice.

My advice to someone considering this solution is to back up the whole configuration. Also, you have to have things well documented and to take into consideration the maintenance times. Furthermore, updating the operating systems, host operating systems and guest operating systems is extremely important, otherwise, it could lead to unnecessary downtime.

If I was going to a demo, and somebody had given me an iPhone and I had to quickly gut it, my first choice would not be Hyper-V. It is not a user-friendly solution. I would say the ability to assign more dynamically, like VM-ware does. And the SRM feature to be brought back into Hyper-V so that you're not looking at virtual box which is a cheap version, but that you're looking at enterprise, you're looking at VM-ware. But if there was one button to move everything over to the new system, if that could be put in as a feature then it would be very attractive.

It is definitely the toughest competitor for VMware. There is room for improvement for automation. If that was implemented, it would place Hyper-V on the same realm as VMware.

I would like to see deduplication and compression in a future roll-out of the product.

If you want to use a solution that does the job that is required, to the best of its ability, then Hyper-V is a great solution.
