When we launched the latest version of ConVirt in January that added support for Hyper-V, we knew were delivering something the market was asking for. We hear it from customers every day. Six months later, we’re more convinced than ever that Hyper-V is a growing force to be reckoned with in datacenter virtualization.
This seems to be borne out in a Redmond Magazine article by Jeff Schwartz. The story cites evidence from all over that Hyper-V is providing real, production-grade virtualization capabilities in organizations of all types. It’s worth a read.
This is not “We told you so.” Nor is it taking sides with Microsoft now that Hyper-V is finally realizing its potential. Rather, it is to point out that customers have choices. Once upon a time, it was VMWare or bust. Now, there are four viable players, including Xen and KVM and customers are the ones benefiting, as is always the case when there’s choice.
Our perspective at Convirture is “choose away.” As we’ve said many times, we’re here to support and manage any and all virtual technologies that you are using or may be considering. Because we’re vendor agnostic, there are no losers in the virtualization and cloud wars. You choose whatever works for you, we’ll help you manage it, and everybody wins.
