    If you are talking about ROI (Return on Investment), Citrix, ESXI, and VMWARE Server are all free alternatives with compatibility with nearly every operating system. In almost every instance the performance is better than Hyper-V.

    Thank you for the input, Drew. :)


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Of what I have used,VMware Server is certainly great. And it also looks to me better than Hyper-V.


    - It allows one to power on virtual machines at system boot. For example, it is possible to turn on a Windows machine with VMware Server installed and have the NST Virtual Machine automatically started (you don't need to touch anything but the power button - logging into Windows is not required).

    - It allows one to start/stop/use virtual machines from remote computers. For example, one can run the vmware-server-console on a Linux system and manage (or access) virtual machines running on a remote Windows box.

    - It allows one to enable dual CPUs on SMP systems (the VMware Playerâ„¢ only allows one to use a single CPU)

    - It provides a full GUI VMX editor whereas one needs to edit their VMX files in a text editor when using VMware Player

    What Are The Advantages Of Using VMware Server?



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Thank you Guys for your input, feel free to add. :)

    Another good & newly update Hyper-V R2 vs Vmware ESX 4 comparison

    Another good & newly update Hyper-V R2 vs Vmware ESX 4 comparison can be found at:

    VMware vSphere versus MS Hyper-V R2


    I thought this comparison was the most fair and comprehensive I came across. Leave your feed back.

    Enjoy,
