I am planning on virtualizing my SharePoint environment and currently, I can go with either VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V.

I want to know whether one of the products works better with SharePoint than the other. I take it that Hyper-V might have more features since both are Microsoft products but I am really not sure.

So which one should I use?

Practically, both will work properly with SharePoint, the two products are the same in terms of max configurations.

For comparison check Choosing between VMware and Hyper-V

I prefer the Hyper-V for the following reasons:

  • Deploying new virtual servers in short times (Minutes).
  • In many cases, there is no downtime for maintenance.
  • The backup process is very easy.
  • Low price.
  • The live migration is simple.

Meanwhile, I prefer the Vmware for its known stability.
