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?

VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V

Again, I would said I’m not sure how true chart show as above and the most important is apple to apple comparison.

In fact, there are many many kind of comparison between VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix Xen. Please feel free to contact us, we’re willing to share with you!
