VMware vs. Hyper-V: When Myth Busting Goes Wrong And Becomes A Myth To Bust Itself


Today I saw a video posted by Microsoft that should have shown a number of myths busted about VMware ESX. Unfortunately it turned out to be wrong on a number of points and it made me angry, why can’t we play it fair. With Hyper-V, I think MS has quite a good product for a 1.0 version, but these marketing campaigns that try to tell the world that Hyper-V is mature already, really come down the wrong way on me. Why not just admit that in version 1.0 it is no match for Xen or ESX, but definitely a good start and tell about the improvements you make for R2? When I see a video like this, I can’t help it and I just feel the need to correct it.

In the video they have 10 myths they want to bust, 10 points on which VMware is wrong when comparing ESX to Hyper-V. Some of these busts are not quit correct. Therefore my list:
1) Microsoft has no live migration.
2) Clustered file systems
3) Hyper-V is a 1.0 product.
4) Low performance
5) Footprint
6) Broad hardware support
7) Management
8 ) Memory Over-commit
9) Lower cost per VM
10) You Need VMware Virtualization
