Figure 1.Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure

Microsoft is a leader, right behind VMware on the June 2012 Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization released by Gartner.

But wait – in this magic quadrant, Gartner compares Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and System Center 2007 with VMware vSphere 5. You can imagine what would be the outcome if they were to consider Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V and System Center 2012!!

What is also interesting to note, is about the cautions that Gartner have mentioned about Microsoft vs. VMware:

For Microsoft, the cautions are all around sales & marketing, such as penetrating VMware installed base and facing competition. For VMware, however, the caution is about customer concerns around vendor lock-in – specifically around the lack of support for heterogeneous environments, a strength in System Center 2012 that brings flexibility to customers.

    seems in storage storage and availability there are some points that say HV is not mature enough yet
    what is your opinion
    Thanks

    • Which specific features in storage? I went through the link you posted very quickly and found that Hyper-V seems to have more “yes” than VMware in Storage and all areas 🙂
      At the end of the day, it is what YOU need as a customer. What features are important for you, what features will you use? How much cost do you want to save? If you’re in Qatar let me know and we can talk.
