Microsoft Server Virtualization Beats VMware
August 27, 2010
Datamation reports that Microsoft is touting engineering giant CH2M Hill as its latest example of how its Hyper-V virtualization platform is beating out VMware. According to the report, privately held CH2M Hill has been working on cost-cutting initiatives, including server virtualization, since before the economy began to tank in 2007. The Denver-area firm already had a significant investment in VMware's (NYSE: VMW) ESX hypervisor technology dating to 2005 but decided to switch to Microsoft's VMware competitor -- Hyper-V -- along with Windows Server 2008 Release 2 (R2).
