VMware Migration

Do you wonder why you’re paying for VMware hypervisor when that functionality already exists with Hyper-V with Microsoft Windows Server? That may explain why Hyper-V has had four times the growth of VMware's ESX over the past three years. Whether it's virtual to virtual (from one hypervisor to another) or physical to virtual, migration provides a path for consolidation of workloads and services, and the foundation for cloud.​​
