To deliver greater value to the business, further reduce costs, and accelerate the journey to the cloud, organizations are making the shift from VMware to Microsoft for their virtualized infrastructure. By migrating from VMware to Microsoft, you gain the ability to manage physical, virtual, and cross-platform, adapt cloud computing to your business needs through greater choice, and achieve greater value for less cost than with VMware.
Whether you are looking to add Windows Server with Hyper-V and System Center to your virtualized infrastructure, grow your existing Windows Server with Hyper-V footprint and manage cross-platform, or migrate your VMware virtualized infrastructure entirely, Microsoft provides a comprehensive set of technologies to optimize your infrastructure. A move to Microsoft’s virtualization and management platform can help you better achieve your business objectives and enable you to consume cloud on your terms.
Improve Virtualization & Private Cloud Economics
With Microsoft, the return on investment of your private cloud can increase as you scale. A comparable VMware private cloud solution can cost from five to six times more than the Microsoft private cloud solution over a period of one to three years. Microsoft licenses its private cloud solutions on a per-processor basis, so you get the cloud computing benefits of scale with unlimited virtualization and lower costs consistently and predictably over time.
Gain Rich Management Capabilities with System Center
System Center enables physical, virtual, private cloud, and public cloud management using a single pane of glass. It offers support for multi-hypervisor management, third-party integration and process management, and deep application diagnostics and insight. You can see what is happening inside the performance of your applications, remediate issues faster, and achieve increased agility for your organization.
Minimize Switching Costs with Microsoft’s Virtual Machine Migration Toolkit
With Microsoft’s Virtual Machine Migration Toolkit, Microsoft Consulting Services and trained partners can perform end-to-end V2V migrations from VMware to the Microsoft virtualization platform. The toolkit is a set of existing products and custom-built components that helps users discover and assess their VMware environments and safely mass-migrate virtual machines.
