Microsoft Virtualization - Virtualization without Taxation
This video compares Microsoft Virtualization to VMware and outlines the additional cost for VMware because they require four layers - hardware, virtualization, operating system and applications and Microsoft only requires three - hardware, operating system with virtualization, and applications.

In addition to providing lower TCO and simpler architecture through Hyper-V server virtualization technology, Microsoft also offers a set of FREE virtualization planning, deployment and operational tools called Virtualization Solution Accelerators that aim at reducing the planning and deployment costs of virtualization.  Download them now for free and jump start your virtualization project today!
