The battle to be one's virtualization vendor is in full swing, and it has important ramifications for the vendors involved, and for your data center. The goal of this whitepaper is to analyze the technical aspects of the two major choices: VMware vSphere 4 and Microsoft Hyper-V R2 (as part of Windows Server 2008 R2). The two contenders are described in technical detail, and then those details are compared head-to-head. Typical pricing in two scenarios is included. Analysis of these tools, how they will impact the datacenter virtualization, and what the future likely holds is included.
