VMware, Hyper-V together more in virtualized infrastructure

Mixed virtual environments are becoming more prevalent as IT shops combine VMware, Hyper-V and other platforms in their virtualized infrastructure.

There are several reasons why more organizations are mixing VMware, Hyper-V and other platforms. Some do it temporarily as they transition their virtualized infrastructure from one platform to another. For others whose primary platform is VMware, Hyper-V can be a cheaper alternative for one-off projects, special applications or virtualized infrastructure deployments in branch offices.
