    Both has it own benefits is the obvious leader in virtualization products Microsoft and Oracle virtualization products found lacking in features and performance compared to the VMware product continuing enhancements are taking vSphere to the next level of enterprise best choice for building a virtual infrastructure

    Probably not. The cost of migration in terms of time, dollars, people, and frustration would be hard to justify, though our VMware licenses are very expensive.

    Yes I would, Microsoft

    Both are way behind Vmware in terms of creating ecosystem rather then just virtualization platform. But sometimes I prefer KVM because it's free.

    Stability and cost are the #1 factors in any of our systems.
    I think that pretty much sums up why I wouldn't use MS or VMw.
    Just because something is 'easy to use' or 'more compatible', etc. never means it's necessarily the best choice in any given circumstance.
    When I'm able to bring up a virtual server on a new host, not be concerned with it for the entire lifetime of the hardware, migrate it to a new host, and so on... that speaks volumes to me. And that's what I've been doing for several years now.

    Yes, HyperV is much cheaper for our educational organization than VMware.

    Am in the process of evaluating Redhat KVM since it has been an organisational mandate to move away from VMware which we have in production and whose licenses are up for renewals.Would see savings but there  would be migration issues to deal with.

    kvm support live migration even if you use das. and there are a lot of open software to manage efficiently little to medium virtualization clusters, with high availability for storage, virtual machines and related services. and you can always "grow up" to cloud levels...
