I went through this article from Information Week and I absolutely agreed with the point been brought up by the author about the reason why Hyper-V is just not ready for Enterprise use. No question about Microsoft capabilities about the software they had developed. In fact, I had been with Microsoft platform for long year. But when come to virtual data center, I really believe CHEAP do not meant everything and they have a huge gap to close up the competition with VMware anyway.

New Join effort from Microsoft Hyper V and Redhat Virtualization

Posted on February 18th, 2009 in Industry News, Virtualization | No Comments »

Latest industry news show that both Microsoft and Redhat had finally agreed to support each others in their virtualization technology to allow inter operation and support to each others. Beside SuSE Linux, we will later see the Redhat able to be run on Microsoft Hyper V. For consumer, is a good move absolutely for both Microsoft and Redhat users which allow their customer to standardize and consolidate their virtual environment more efficient. But if we compare both to VMware, I will say they are still far behind as we can see the capabilities from VMware to interop with any operating system base on x86 or x64 today.

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.
