Hyper-V / WS 2016 has been added to our ‘always online’ virtualization category.

Compare it now!

The first release of Hyper-V was provided with Windows Server 2008 a long time ago now, when dinosaurs were still roaming earth. Since the initial version of Hyper-V, Microsoft has improved and added a lot of new features to this hypervisor. When Microsoft released the initial version of Hyper-V, the gap was huge compared to VMware, the market leader at the time.

But this year (in October 2016), Microsoft provided a new Hyper-V version with Windows Server 2016 and with that they’ve managed to significantly reduce this gap. Recent analysis pretty consistently shows Microsoft and VMware as the leaders of the hypervisor market with marginal differences.

When I speak with customers, they know that Hyper-V and VMware are similar in term of features. Almost all my customers say the same thing: VMware is too expensive compared to Hyper-V. They are aware that Hyper-V provides almost the same features that VMware does. If something is missing it’s often not considered important enough to justify the higher price. An example is the hot-add vCPU which is not present in Hyper-V. But it is a good example of a less relevant feature because it is not really used day on a daily basis in VMware infrastructures (and sometimes a VM reboot is required in order for the application to take advantage of a new CPU. eg: SQL Server).
