Pro's and Cons - Hyper-V vs VMWare
I'm just weighing up a few options at the moment as it's the time when my VMWare subscriptions come to the point of renewal.
Having never even used / tested/ or really looked at Hyper-V whats the benefit of using that over VMWare ?
In my understanding Hyper-V runs on Windows (2008 & 2012?) so what if your server becomes compromised ? Is this a risk where all my Virtual Machines could be at risk too ? By that I mean if the OS goes down does Hyper-V go with it ?
HOw easy is it to cluster Hyper-V servers and restore VM's in case of failure ?
I do have a couple of Xen / KVM / oVirt servers BUT I don't run them on my production network. At the moment I have one server running ESXI 4.1 and one running ESXI 5.5.
What is your opinions ? Please Discuss!
