Given the youth and feature set of Microsoft Hyper-V, the question is, how does it rate when compared to more seasoned hypervisors from VMware and Citrix?

In this transcript, senior enterprise IT architect Nelson Ruest breaks down VMware ESX Server, Citrix XenServer and Hyper-V, providing details on what each product has to offer. You'll also learn more about what you can and can't do with Hyper-V, with insight into some of the key memory management features that Microsoft's technology does not yet support.

Other topics covered include:

  • A look at typical Hyper-V configurations
  • Virtualization management tools - comparing VMware, Microsoft and Citrix
  • A breakdown of the best lab management tools on the market today
