Simplify the Switch: Why Moving from VMware to Hyper V Makes Sense

Microsoft's Hyper V offers several reasons why you should move from VMware to Hyper-V, making it a better and more economical choice for your enterprise.

When it comes to moving business data and operations to the cloud, many businesses and enterprises have decided that it's good to have expert help with their transition and with their ongoing cloud operations.

One place where expertise from a trusted partner comes into play is in deciding which hypervisor to use to manage and run a company's virtualization infrastructure so that those operations and related business data can be stored and used in the cloud.

Using Microsoft's Windows Server operating system platforms can offer several key advantages in this journey because Microsoft's Hyper-V hypervisor can be used for free with Windows Server 2012 or 2016, saving thousands of dollars in software licensing costs compared to hypervisors from VMware and others.

But what if a business is already using VMware for their virtualization tasks?

That's where a switch from VMware to Hyper-V really makes sense. It offers nearly all the capabilities of VMware ESXi while also including tight integration and a clear migration path to Microsoft Azure. That close connection with Azure can be a huge benefit to business IT operations as they expand their capabilities in the cloud. That native interoperability between Hyper-V and Azure enables the agility and scale of the public cloud while maintaining the security and compliance of the private cloud.
