I am looking at 'management costs' associated with Hyper-V...VMWare has Virtual Center for a fixed rate. With 12-15 servers what would I need to budget for this with MS? 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.

VMware charges a fixed cost for vCenter but a per host charge for ESX. Microsoft charges per host for System Center Suite but the cost is still 1/5 that of buying VI3/ESX. Thus, the cost savings still scale accordingly.
