High Availability & Resiliency: Competitive advantages of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V over VMware ESXi 5.0


About This Video

In this session, we will compare free hypervisors, specifically looking at the competitive advantages of Hyper-V Server 2012 over VMware ESXi 5. We will focus the demonstrations and presentation on Microsoft Hyper-V Server, the free product from Microsoft that contains the core hypervisor components.

We will detail how the core driver model works to enable interoperability with different hardware and software. We will discuss concepts such as Live Migration, and how IT administrators can move running virtual machines around between physical nodes within a cluster. Following this, we will demonstrate exactly how a cluster can be built within Hyper-V Server to provide high availability. Then we will cover how to run virtual machines on the clusters.
