  • Microsoft would certainly tell you to use Hyper-V as it is their product and, as Leonid has pointed out, they have tested BizTAlk extensively in Hyper-V.

    From experience though it depends a lot on what your organization already uses and is comfortable with. So, in summary, I would recommend Hyper-V unless you already have a VMWare infrastructure in place and that is the virtualization tool used by your company.

  • Thanks for the info... I'll give it a shot this weekend!!! I was looking more for the info on Hyper-V for VMWare for BizTalk...

    I've read in Microsoft's website saying Hyper-V is optimized for BizTalk... I wonder what does Hyper-V provide that VMWare doesn't already???

    Is it worth the switch at all?
