    Cheerleading won't help VM fight off Microsofts Hyper-V software

    Hyper-V is the new standard for all corporations. Its 20% cheaper and much better.

    You may see 80.00 But the trend is lower earnings and sales. The company spelled it out But did tell you why..

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Anything Microsoft does is #$%$, and when another company makes a better product Microsoft try to acquire that company, lol.

    • Cheerleading will not help VM, but they do need help. Isn't that why they had to buy Virsto?

      From Business Insider: "Microsoft is breathing down VMware's neck with a competing technology known as Hyper-V. Hyper-V is included in Microsoft's flagship server operating system, Windows Server 2012.
      For many years, Hyper-V was considered the cheaper, less desirable alternative to VMware's flagship software. But Microsoft loaded WS2012 with features that, in some cases, leapfrog VMware's. One of these better features is called Storage Spaces, which works a lot like Virsto.

      VMware owns 90% of the enterprise market, and Microsoft's Hyper-V isn't going to change that. But the issue is growth, which will come from small companies and large, cloud-provider data centers. Both can be very cost-conscious, which makes Microsoft more appealing to them."

    • Lol, probably another MS cheerleader that doesn't know what he is talking about, with Nicira acquisition VMware is entering a new multibillion dollar market and VMware is expanding into multi vendor solution whereas MS is just MS hyper-V. Any smart investor will load up here as 100$ is coming sooner than others think.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Hyper - V much better? where do you get your info from some BS microsoft white paper? You obviously aren't in the tech industry or you work at MS. Tell me why Azure doesn't run Hyper-V? Cause it doesn't work - much less scale.

      Sentiment: Buy

      This board has ALWAYS been full of cheerleaders

    • MSFT is the most greedy company out there. Ask why their Hyper-V is so cheap. Look at the name. Nothing that has a "V" in it is cheap. Dodge Viper. Volvo. Plus it has hyper.

      • It's the bottom line cost.. Yes I work for Mr. Softy. Yes we are cheaper . . I can tell you we are winning more & more large bids over VM because of price ... Its up to the user, they want the best price. Better, if you mean VM doesn't always get the contracts--
        I still believe this market will correct the closer we get to March 1 . Both MSFT and VM will be hurt. Just wanted to look at the board.. I am going to cash..GLTA both longs & shorts

        Sentiment: Hold

    • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Windows Server??? What CTO wants to bank their company on Windows Server???? sorry, your husband died because our server got the "blue screen of death" and froze.

      hey mlb, 1998 called and they want their Windows Server back.
