Disadvantages To Using Hyper-V

Comparisons Of Hyper-V And VMware
Both Hyper-V and VMware are similar in that they focus upon virtual environments. Hyper-V was initially created in order to support isolation in terms of partitions (the part of the hard drive that is made available to the operating system). Of course, the main difference between these 2 programs is their price. If you want to use Hyper-V on just 5 servers it will cost you around $10,000 whereas VMware can cost you anywhere up to $50,000 for 5 servers. Another important difference between these 2 systems is the number of specifications. While VMware doesn’t have an application or service monitoring system, Microsoft Hyper-V does. Furthermore, VMware has been around for a lot longer than Microsoft Hyper-V. This means that any potential bugs and problems with VMware have already been worked out, there is still the possibility that these bugs and problems will still arise with Hyper-V.
