Not true if running Windows vm's on Windows 2008 r2 hyper-v.
When running Windows vm's on esxi you lose some performance due to
emulation from Linux. That isn't lost in hyper-v. Plus, things like driver
updates and general ease of configuration are much easier in hyper-v.
Most studies today show that you can run Windows vm's on full blown 2008 r2
with negligible performance hit over core. Hyper-v allows for each vm to
access the bus directly.
If you guys haven't seen hyper-v in action especially using the new virtual
machine manager in system center then take a look. It is a game changer.
I would just use vmware server for what you are taking about personally.
Very simple and works well on top of Windows.
