Hyper-V, Windows Server 2012 R2

Plan to throw the first one away, because you're going to do that anyway.

We came out better in the second pass. The initial vendor did a poor job with implementation.

all in one virtualisation solution at an affordable cost

We've been working with Microsoft hyper-V for the past 3 years, so far we've got a very good experience with VM provisioning and management of VM's with critical workload

Windows 2012 R2 Migration for new SQL Servers

We had a significant improvement to operational performance, runtime, standardization, and network performance by migrating from older versions of Windows 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 and 2012 server to Windows 2012 R2. This provided a standardized template and clean slate for provisioning a baseline for our SQL Servers. The migration for 53 servers to this uniform Windows OS allowed us to take advantage of improved performance and feature set built into the core operating system and leverage this on our SQL Server Database servers.

Great functionality of Server 2008 with the aesthetics and friendly UI of Windows 10

Windows Server 2012 R2 has been a welcomed update from Server 2008. It has the functionality of 2008 with the crisp looks of Windows 10 which is nice. It easy to manage any servers you may have i.e. DHCP, DNS, etc. Our main reason for upgrading was to keep our servers up to date and current. The UI is easy to navigate and it is not difficult to find the functionalities you are looking for when needing to make changes or fix a server related issue, patch, etc. I highly recommend the upgrade if you have not done so already.

Hyper-V

Implementation was easy and was already built into the server

Great VM and integration with Windows

Hyper-V, System Center VMM, Windows Server 2012 R2

2012R2 makes life much easier

HyperV has been pretty powerful. Using it in a clustered environment has had it's issues, though standalone hosts are often bullet proof.

Windows Server 2012 implementation

The installation of Server 2012 was pretty straight forward.

Windows Server 2012 R2

Easy to implement but not so easy to maintain.

It was very easy to implement since we had been using windows products for so long. We had also used MC Virtual PC for years so it seemed familiar as well.

Hyper-V

Requires Windows Server Knowledge to Install and Isn't as stable as other Hypervisors

Hyper-V was somewhat easy to install and implement if you are very familiar with Windows. It runs virtual machines fine until the cluster's WMI database becomes corrupt and you have to reboot a host to fix it, which usually involves an outage while the virtua machines on the unmanageable host migrate over to the functional host.
