Comparison of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Versus vSphere 5.1- Detail

imageI know in October I had this post in my series that talked about why you should choose Hyper-V over VMware:

31 Days of Our Favorite Things: No Better Time than Now to Choose Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 over VMware (Part 31 of 31) 

Well one of our fellow IT Pro’s Aidan Finn posted a much more detail post on his blog here:

Comparison of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Versus vSphere 5.1 

His post goes into great detail and I recommend you check out. Aidan really writes some fantastic articles, what I found particularly interesting on this post is that he apparently has rustled some feathers in the VMware marketing org – apparently they are throwing their FUD engine into high gear to try to distract / discredit him.    Please keep in mind Aidan is not a Microsoft employee, so I find it funny when a vendor like VMware is going after him.  Enjoy the post.

Lastly, while all the comparison posts are great I would recommend you give Hyper-V 2012 a test.  I know you will not be disappointed. 

What do you think of Aidan’s posts?
