vSphere vs. Hyper-V: The Head to Head Battle!

On Thursday August 8th I participated in a webinar debate.  Shawn MacArthur (CEO of VMTraining) and I had a friendly debate over which hypervisor and virtualization ecosystem was better.  This was the third part in the series – The first had Shawn discussing vSphere, the second had me discussing Hyper-V and System Center.

Who won?  The listener of course!  The one-hour discussion of the two systems was very informative and was not meant to dismiss the fact that both products are excellent, and that both products are (according to Gartner.com) leaders in the field of x86 virtualization technology.

I invite you to watch all three videos and comment (either there or here).  I still believe that Microsoft’s virtualization is superior and hope that comes through, but in the end it is important to know what is out there, and that includes the competition!

You can watch all three videos by visiting the Webinars page of VMTraining’s website at http://www.vmtraining.net/technical-webinars/.

  1. I certainly agree that both are excellent, but I too prefer Hyper-V because Microsoft can take it much farther than anyone else. Witness the 2012/13 suite of products that constitute an entirely new approach to IT. Only the O/S maker can do that.

    But regardless of what we think technically, the marketplace will determine the winner. VMware was first and best, but they have no more cards to play. As long as Microsoft owns the platform and its future, Hyper-V will inevitably become the only solution.

    I have a new business entering into cloud services now, For me and others like me, using Hyper-V is a no-brainer, so where do new VMware customers come from? VMware needs an entirely new product line for the new future.

  2. When trying to access http://www.vmtraining.net/technical-webinars/ I Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@vmtraining.net and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    1. Thanks Alex. I have told the guys at VMTraining that their site is down… I am sure they will get it back up today. -MDG
