Building on our learnings from part 1, we take a look at the key components of the Microsoft Private Cloud, and how they come together to provide a more compelling and comprehensive solution than the VMware vCloud. We look at application management, monitoring and deployment, workload protection, heterogeneous management, automation, and much more. We also take a quick look at some of the pricing and licensing options for each solution. If you’re thinking about Private Cloud, this is a session you can’t afford to miss!

    The Discussion

    • User profile image

      I've worked with both solutions.  I am curious as to the benefits of the Microsoft cloud and what it might take to offer it in place of VMware.

      Our main farm is VMware but I an others push to expand hyper-v and a comparison is just what the doctor ordered

      This is a great idea for a session. Looking forward to it. We're getting ready to bring in vCloud for a project. I'd love to hear some practical comparisons between the two private cloud offerings and not just the standard marketing fluff (they have 200 features, we have 201).

      Very much looking forward to hearing some opinion of the V versus VMware.  100% all VMware shop, so this will be our first exposure to the V.  I wonder how many flavors of Kool Aid they've have?  Wink

      Looking forward to this session as long as it's not a marketing campaign. Big Smile

      Sadly I won't be able to attend this session. I made other commitments because I didn't know that this was part two of his Hyper-V vs vCenter session! I will have to download the recording when I get home. He is an excellent speaker and did a good job with the comparisons in the first session.

      Really good session. It ended with a comparison of 500 VM's and cost comparison. I just completed that exact cost comparison project so I was speechless when I saw him do the exact same thing.
