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

The biggest differentials is in-guest knowledge. VMware really looks at VMs like a black box and they are trying to manage and control them solely from that VM level. But end-users and customers don’t care about the VM, they care about their applications and services. Microsoft uniquely integrates our Virtualization Management with our other tools, such as Operations Manager and Configuraiton Manager. That means that not only can be Live migration/vMotion VMs, we can link migrations to business issues, applications, and services. This is about making virtualization a part of IT and IT processes, making that true dynamic datacenter.
