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.
This podcast also features news about the first Hyper-V security update. Microsoft has released a patch addressing a vulnerability that could allow someone to launch a denial-of-service attack from guest operating systems in Hyper-V.
Rob McShinsky, senior systems engineer for Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, calls in to talk about how serious the Hyper-V security update is and what to do to protect your Hyper-V virtualized infrastructure.
