RT "Cutting through the FUD: Facts you should know about Hyper-V and System Center"

I’m not sure the retweet tag (RT) also applies to blogs or not, but I thought I’d give it a try.

Now to my point. Edwin posted a good blog this evening about re-occurring Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt the spreads via traditional journalism or blogs. I don’t know for sure, but I suspect his post had something to do with an InformationWeek blog posted by an SI partner of VMware.

I recommend reading Edwin’s post. Here’s a summary of his points:

  • You do not need to remove or replace your existing VMware installation to deploy Hyper-V 
  • Hyper-V and the rest of Microsoft Virtualization is “Enterprise ready” for hundreds of companies today.
  • Virtual Machine Manager is not a replacement for vCenter 
  • Hyper-V is a mature, safe, secure hypervisor 

Have a great holiday.


UPDATE: James also blogged about this topic, with video and picture too.
