They wanted to switch from VMware to Hyper-V to reduce costs, but were concerned about the migration process. The Hyper–V server role in Windows Server lets you create a virtualized server computing environment where you can create and manage virtual machines. You can run multiple operating systems on one physical computer and isolate the operating systems from each other. With this technology, you can improve the efficiency of your computing resources and free up your hardware resources.
Infront helped build a Microsoft-based private cloud to migrate hundreds of VMware virtual machines to Hyper-V easily and efficiently. With the conversion, they are able to avoid more than US $600,000 in VMware licensing costs over five years, cutting server count in half, trimming labor costs, keeping clinical and business applications available, and delivering servers in hours instead of days.
The Infront team is passionate about virtualization and would gladly explore possible solutions for your organization to reduce cost through licensing fees, reduced number of servers, labor or developing automation.
