Presented by Mike Burke, Practice Director, VIRTERA, Inc.
In this session, Mike Burke, Practice Director for VIRTERA, Inc will explore what exactly Microsoft’s Hyper-V and System Center suite of management tools can offer to an organization. Mike will also examine whether the cost differentials from VMware solutions offset any gaps in functionality.
Leveraging Hyper-V R2 and System Center VMM/Operations Manager R2, this session will look at the capabilities this platform can provide, from virtualizing development, test and production workloads, to being able to maintain and operationalize the environment to meet the demands of the business. This session will also include demonstrations of key functionality while outlining the distinct differences between VMware and Microsoft offerings, and understanding just how far Microsoft’s message of a “single pane of glass” can effectively manage VMware environments. Attendees will leave with a good understanding as to the limitations of Hyper-V/SCVMM vs. VMware and where each is a good fit in an organization.
