To get there in 3 years time is not a bad track record. Now knowing that they only had Virtual Server to offer before Hyper-V was available and I was not using that anywhere. So the success if Hyper-V is quite an achievement. Some people thought I was making a mistake.
They never mentioned the cost and some trends however or looked at the customers real needs. Hyper-V was a lot better than what most environments I had to serve had running at the time. However as you might have guessed these people did not use ESX. In all honesty, the cost associated. The hardware cost barrier had come down and now with Hyper-V 1. We also knew that Live Migration and Dynamic Memory were in the pipe lines and the product would only become better.
Having tested Hyper-V I knew I had a technology to work with at a very reasonable price or even for free and that included high availability. Combine this with the notion at the time that hyper visors are becoming commodities and that people are announcing the era of the cloud.
Where do you think the money needs to go? Where did Microsoft help with that? The System Center suite. Are those perfect at their current incarnations? Do you follow the buzz around Hyper-V 3. Take a peak and you know where this is going. Even if you have no desire or need for the public cloud, do take a look.
Having a private cloud capability enhances your internal service delivery. Having a private cloud is a prerequisite for having a Hybrid cloud, which aids in the use of the public cloud when that time comes for your organization.
And if never, no problem, you have gotten the best internal environment possible, no money or time lost. Is Hyper-V and System Center the perfect solution for everyone in every case? No sir. No single product or product stack can be everything to everyone. The entire VMware versus Hyper-V mud slinging contests are at best amusing when you have the time and are in the mood for it. And very few people know all virtualization products very well and have equal experience with them.
True objectivity is very hard. There are still people out there claiming you need to reboot a Windows server daily and have BSODs all over the place. If that is really the case they should not be blaming technology.
If the technology was that bad they would not need to try and convince people not to use it, they would run away from it by themselves and I would be asking you if you want fries with your burger. That means there is a need for different solutions in different areas and that Hyper-V was doing particular well in green field scenarios.
Am I happy with the choices I made? I mailed the Gartner link to my manager, pointing out my obstinate choice back then turned out rather well.
