Nice Video of the HyperV that you will not want to miss out

Posted on May 6th, 2009 in Hyper-V, Industry News, Server, Virtualization | No Comments »

I had watched the nice video which posted by Duncan from yellow bricks days back. The video had showed some “GREAT” result and excellent BLUE SCREEN that every administrator will not want it to be happened to themself. Windows Servers running on HypverV and getting bunch of blue screen is not a joke. You should reconsider to put your mission critical environment with HyperV rather than VMware and Xen.

You can read more about the article from here and watch the nice video too.

Have fun.

VMware and competitor

Posted on April 23rd, 2009 in Hyper-V, vSphere, Xen | 1 Comment »

I was just came back from Sime Darby Convention Centre – HP ProLiant G6 Servers Launch event and VMware competitor “Citrix” and “Microsoft” representative talked about Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix Xen hypervisor. Anything interesting? Seriously, both of them talked about marketing bull shit! If I’m have not try VMware, Hyper-V or Xen before, probably I may interested with the presentation.

If you’re looking at technical point of view, personally I think VMware competitor is few year behind VMware vSphere. Check out more detail about VMware vSphere 4 Cheat Sheet posted by Jason Boche.

Referring to costing, I don’t agreed with what Citrix presented during the event this morning. You’re always try to tell customer pay if you need it. What are you talking about? Are you trying to tell Enterprise customers don’t use HA or don’t use those features provided? How about Microsoft Hyper-V cost comparison?

Microsoft Mythbusters Top 10 VMware Myths

Posted on April 9th, 2009 in Data Center, Hyper-V, Industry News, vCenter, Virtualization | 2 Comments »

I had just read through some articles and watch the video from Microsoft about the top 10 VMware Myths today, I would like to share my thoughts about the video details published by Microsoft with unbiased opinions.

The guys talked about Live Migration on HyperV on the next release. As a customer, I am always believed that the software provider should only commit and tell the customers when their products are ready, and not always tell the customer WE ARE READY IN THE NEXT RELEASE. This only explain as your product is not ready, what about your next release is in 2 years time? That meant the products is not as promise as you publish to the customers. Please take note that VMware had supported Storage VMotion for current version, which is another step beyond of Live Migration.

Hyper-V vs. VMware: Which is cheaper?

Posted on February 10th, 2009 in Hyper-V, Industry News | 1 Comment »

Microsoft claims that Hyper-V is cheaper than VMwareBut there are several hidden costs that, depending on the user scenario, may make VMware the more cost-effective option, analysts and users say.

Microsoft touts Hyper-V as a lower-priced virtualization option than VMware’s ESXi, but for straight server consolidation, it’s unclear whether Hyper-V is that much cheaper than VMware because of Hyper-V’s system requirements and lower consolidation ratios.
