Compare Hyperv 3.0 & Vsphere 5.0

Posted Posted in Virtualization

1) Scalablity To start the comparison, we would choose scalability and  config maximums as these are the important aspects to look for while choosing the platform for your cloud. Microsoft Windows 2012 RC’s Hyper-V 3.0 seems to be promising on scalability than VMware vSphere 5.0. The maximum supported clustered nodes increased to 64 with increase in support of running VM’s i.e 4000 VM’s, more logical processors per host and more Physical RAM per host as compared to VMware.
