VDI With Hyper-V Gets Easier And Better

Posted by TJ Racherla on Aug 20, 2015

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) has traditionally been more costly to implement than buying new PCs, preventing organizations from taking advantage of the mobility, security, and productivity advantages.

Microsoft VDI on Hyper-V is half the cost of VMware, making virtual desktops even cheaper than PC refresh. But many think Hyper-V still lags behind VMware technically. As the EBook, 7 Reasons Why VDI with Hyper-V and RDS is Poised for Takeoff explains, that's no longer the case. Here are two more examples from our Technical Blog explaining why Hyper-V may actually be surpassing VMware vSphere when it comes to hosting virtual desktop workloads.

Hyper-V Deduplication & VDI: Save on Storage, Cut Desktop Costs in Half

Posted by Andrea Abernathy on Aug 18, 2015

Microsoft VDI on Hyper-V is half the cost of VMware, making virtual desktops even cheaper than PC refresh. But many still think Hyper-V still lags behind VMware technically. As the EBook, 6 Reasons Why VDI with Hyper-V and RDS is Poised for Takeoff explains, that's no longer the case. My recent blog comparing Hyper-V dynamic memory and VMware memory overcommitment is an example of how, when it comes to VDI workloads, Hyper-V may actually be surpassing VMware.

Here's another data point. Hyper-V now offers built-in data deduplication that radically reduces space requirements for both non-persistent AND persistent virtual desktop use cases - something you used to have to pay big bucks to get. This blog takes a closer look.
