The True Costs of Virtual Server Solutions

VMware/Intel Server Refresh and Cost Savings

In March of 2009, VMware contacted Taneja Group to conduct an assessment of how VMware ESXi 3.5 and Microsoft Hyper-V compare when it comes to hosting multiple virtual machines. Taneja's hands-on validation has revealed that the Infrastructure leader can achieve a significantly higher VM density, allowing users to consolidate more servers on a platform.
