  • Please search through the forum, this has been discussed - but we tend not to compare and contrast in this forum.

    Each platform has its pluses and minuses.  And the pluses and minuses depend on many many things.

    Also, don't forget XenServer, Oracle VM, KVM, etc.  There are other perfectly viable and robust hypervisor platforms as well.

    You will be best served by discovering a set of features that you require (not just features that you want, like, sound interesting - but truely need), and then using that as your criteria for comparison and discovery.
