Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We previously used VMware, but we switched because Hyper-V is cheaper and delivers the same stability for less money."
  • "The licensing is good for a data center environment."
  • "Microsoft Hyper-V is not expensive and is easy to set up."
  • "This is a fairly expensive product because it balances the needs of security."
  • "If you have the standard edition of Windows server then with each copy of the operating system, you have two virtual machines for free."
  • "Because we're an NGO or a charity, we get discount rates from Microsoft. The costs are not astronomical for us. To give you an example, Office 2019 would only cost 30 or 45 for us. We tend to use the on-premises version rather than the cloud version. The reason is that the subscription service works out more expensive after a few years than the on-premise version. We're not worried about having the bleeding edge stuff. We just want it to be functional."
  • "Hyper-V is cost-effective and is a one-time purchase. Microsoft has multiple licensing options available, such as a subscription model and an outside purchase model that customers can choose as per their requirements."
  • "There is a license required for this solution. I would recommend purchasing the support."

    Top Answer: 
    One of the best things about Proxmox VE is that it is open-source and very inexpensive. You get all of the same features as with the more well-known products. Proxmox VE is very easy to deploy - it… more »

    Overview

    Hyper-V is a native hypervisor for x86-64 systems, enabling platform virtualization. It is a Microsoft product that comes in two forms. One form is Hyper-V as a standalone product, known as Hyper-V Server (Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 is the latest version). The other form is as a role to be installed in Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, or the x64 version of Window 8 Pro. No matter what form it takes, Hyper-V gives you the services and tools required to create a virtualized server environment.

    Hyper-V creates a cost-effective, stable and productive server virtualization environment by running multiple operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, and more, in parallel on one server.

    Some of the business benefits of installing Hyper-V include:

    • Create a private cloud environment or expand an existing one.
    • Optimize hardware utilization and minimize resource consumption by consolidating servers in the form of virtual machines on one physical host.
    • Improvement of business continuity.
    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure creation or expansion.
    • Greater efficiency for test and development activities.
    Parallels Virtuozzo Containers creates isolated containers on a single physical server and OS instance.
