Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt3

In the previous comparison posts, we took a peek at how RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V compared in some cost scenarios as well as major features. In this final installment, we’ll take a look at what I believe is the most important feature. Let me give you a hint:

RHEV does not win here. Yet. Continue reading “Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt3”

Comparing RHEV, vSphere, & Hyper-V – pt2

Last week, we took a look at some of the cost-related comparisons between RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V. That’s all fine and dandy, but to make the most of the comparison, and really put it into perspective, we need to show what you get for the money.

If cost was the only factor, we’d all be driving Kia’s

Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt 1

Today’s post will be the first in a short series of comparisons between RHEV 3, vSphere 5, and Hyper-V. This first post will cover the cost comparison between the 3. And while most of the time I like to wait until the end to announce the overall results, I think you can figure it out on your own that my own bias is towards KVM or KVM-based virtualization. So, in the spirit of “cutting to the chase”:

RHEV FTW!! Woohoo!! End of article!! (Just kidding about the last part.) Continue reading “Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt 1”
