Since the release of the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate Microsoft marketing seems to be on full power. Many new whitepapers are released explaining features and giving competative information.
The whitepaper titled Competitive Advantages of Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate Hyper-V over VMware vSphere 5.0 compares features of Windows Server 2012 RC Hyper-V with both the free hypervisor vSphere Hypervisor (incorrecty named in the document as ESXi 5.0) and vSphere 5.0.
Compare is done on four areas:
• Scalability, Performance & Density
• Secure Multitenancy
• Flexible Infrastructure
• High Availability & Resiliency
Obviously the document has a high marketing content. We will not read about features in vSphere which Hyper-V 3.0 does not offer. Still it does give the reader a good overview of the upcoming features.
