Migrating to new Hypervisor.

Dear Community,

We are currently using a Hyper-V as hypervisor with storage from separate SAN Technologies (IBM, NetApp, etc.) and all of our VMs are Windows Server 2012R2/2016/2019.

Our management is deciding to change our current virtualization environment and switch to one of the following HCI solutions Sangfor HCI or Nutanix HCI or Azure Stack HCI.

If we chose Azure Stack HCI, I know migrating to it is not going to be difficult as Hyper-V is the hypervisor in it.

But for Sangfor HCI (hypervisor is aSV) and Nutanix HCI (hypervisor is AHV) migrating to them means complete restructuring of our virtual infrastructure and conversion & migration of all VMs.

With respect to above scenario my questions is as follows

"Has anyone used these aSV and AHV hypervisors with Windows VMs as workloads?"
and
"What issues can we face if we convert and migrate our Windows VM workloads on either of them?"


Thanks and Regards.

Hi - with this being an Azure Stack HCI forum, you may not get many responses around migration to aSV or AHV - forums on those respective sites may be a better option for that kind of advice.

That said, is there something missing in Azure Stack HCI 20H2 that you feel is better addressed in one of the alternative platforms? We'd be keen to listen to your feedback and help if we can.

Thanks,
Matt
