Bolster IT efficiency and flexibility with faster virtualized application deployment and maintenance. Built on Hyper-V, included in Windows Server, Microsoft virtualization solutions help reduce costs by consolidating more workloads on fewer servers. Increase IT agility and flexibility across on-premises and cloud resources with Microsoft virtualization solutions. Virtualization has enabled a new generation of datacenters with more efficiency and availability for your most demanding workloads. Microsoft virtualization solutions go beyond basic virtualization capabilities, such as consolidating server hardware, to create comprehensive platforms for private and hybrid cloud. This means your organization can achieve considerable cost savings and operational efficiencies.
Whether you want to virtualize workloads, build a private cloud, scale your services through a public cloud, or combine all three, Microsoft’s virtualization and management solutions, built on Windows Server and System Center, can help you better manage resources and offer IT as a service. And when you migrate from VMware to Microsoft, you can adapt cloud computing to your business needs.
Did you know that Hyper-V has had four times the growth of VMware’s ESX over the past three years? As such, virtual machine migration is an increasing priority for many customers as more and more are exploring and evaluating the Microsoft platform against their existing VMware installed base. 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.
Available to assist is the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) 3.0, a supported, freely available solution for converting VMware-based virtual machines and virtual disks from VMware hosts to Hyper-V hosts and Microsoft Azure. MVMC 3.0 also enables physical server conversion to Hyper-V virtual machines to assist your virtualization acceleration.
