With the launch of Windows Server 2016, making the switch from VMware to the Microsoft Hyper-V makes more sense than ever. With Microsoft’s VMware migration offer, switching to a cloud-ready, dynamic virtual server is easy.
Migrating from VMware to Hyper-V takes advantage of Windows Server 2016 unmatched benefits, including:
- Built-in security capabilities
- Reduced total cost of ownership
- The flexibility to deploy hybrid to the cloud where optimal
- Scalable cloud application workloads support
- One less vendor that you must negotiate with
Windows Server 2016 provides robust solutions for small and large enterprises. The Hyper-V puts an emphasis on security by offering new, unique security services such as Shielded Virtual Machines and Azure powered Just in Time Administration.
Windows Server 2016 also comes with software-defined datacenter capabilities that cover virtual machines management, increased performance software defined storage, and time-saving networking infrastructure solutions.
Reducing Total Cost of Ownership
Migrating from VMware to Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V reduces your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The VMware to Windows Server 2016 migration offer gives customers free Windows Server Datacenter licenses with a Software Assurance subscription. Basically, if you purchase the maintenance package, Microsoft will grant you the actual license.
The annual cost of a similar VMware solutions suite almost double that of a Windows Server 2016 datacenter – which you still need to purchase to support your Windows workload! (You can calculate your savings here).
Hyper-V positions your IT infrastructure, management, and deployment solutions to be ready to scale with cloud challenges so you can take advantage of the benefits of virtual machines.
