Petite Réflexion personnelle : Pourquoi VMware plutôt qu'Hyper-V (même "gratuit"!)

Lorsque des clients me demandent de justifier le coût de VMware comme hyperviseur, par rapport à Hyper-V qu'ils considèrent comme "gratuit", voici de quoi leur expliquer le coût de la gratuité :   http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1349.hyper-v-update-list-for-windows-server-2008-r2.aspx   Ceci est la liste des patchs/hotfix à intégrer sur un hôte Hyper-V en cluster ou non afin de s'assurer de son bon fonctionnement.

Offline VM servicing is valuable for VM templates places that create new VMs frequently since it allows you to keep VM templates up-to-date.  While this post targets exclusively integration service updates, the same update approach applies to many updates...

Hyper-V Replica Certificate Based Authentication - makecert

We have had a number of queries on how to enable replication using certificates created from makecert. Though the Understanding and Troubleshooting guide for Hyper-V Replica discusses this aspect, I am posting a separate article on this. The below steps are applicable for a simple lab deployment consisting of two standalone servers – PrimaryServer.domain.com and ReplicaServer.domain.com. This can be easily extended to clustered deployments with the Hyper-V Replica Broker. Makecert is a certificate creation tool which generates... [Lire la suite]
