Do you have any recommendations to help us justify migrating to a Hyper-V environment when we've already made a considerable investment in VMware? This question is from the 5/14 Microsoft Virtualization Chat on ITKnowledgeExchange.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What you can start with is using Hyper-V along side VMware. The cost justification gives you that. Also, by standardizing on Hyper-V, you can reap the benefits of the integration of Hyper-V and virtualizaiton with your existng IT knowledge, using Microsoft products.

    To cut to the chase - are you happy with VMware? If not, why? That's the basis (or, at least, that start) of your justification for switching. Does VMware do everything you need it to? Does Hyper-V? That needs to be addressed, before the question of the cost of doing the migration (not just the purchase price, but the migration time and cost, downtime, training, etc.) to ditch one for the other can be answered. The answer to the original question is really in the hands of the OP. They know the reasons why they're looking at migrating between products and vendors; they really need to define that to us before we can give an appropriate answer back.
