Morpheus Announces Microsoft Hyper-V Integration
July 26, 2016

Morpheus Data announced native integration with Microsoft Hyper-V on Morpheus versions 2.7.2 and above.

The new release represents a significant step forward in creating a truly infrastructure-agnostic platform for distributed systems. Morpheus users can now enjoy cost-effective, centralized management of multiple Hyper-V hosts and machines in addition to existing support for most popular hypervisors, containers, and clouds.

Hyper-V integrations are uncommon among modern cloud management platforms because Hyper-V does not have a typical web-based REST API. Integrations require the use of PowerShell scripts in order to deploy to bare metal. Rising customer requests drove the Morpheus team to invest considerable time and resources into building a native integration. The integration is now fully deployed and production ready on all new Morpheus builds.

Hyper-V’s low cost and compatibility with Microsoft Azure are driving a rise in interest, but VMware ESXi still dominates the enterprise hypervisor market. As a result, many customers currently run Microsoft Windows servers in a VMware environment. While this method is effective, it is not the most operationally efficient solution. Most Windows Server users can realize considerable cost savings by switching to a native Hyper-V environment.

It is estimated that at least 40% of all servers currently in operation are running Windows Server, but most are not using Hyper-V. Thus the total cost savings associated with using Morpheus to migrate to Hyper-V are potentially quite large. However, many users are hesitant to switch because Hyper-V doesn’t offer the same level of management tools and support as VMware. This is where Morpheus comes in. The new Hyper-V integration has full access to the entire suite of Morpheus lifecycle management tools, including provisioning, logging, backup, recovery, monitoring, reporting, and access control, all in one easy-to-use interface and at a fraction of the cost of VMware.

“The new Hyper-V integration will allow more customers to truly unlock their hybrid clouds.” said Pete Beecher, President of Morpheus Data. “We can save customers millions of dollars in licensing costs alone, but we are also helping them get more out of their clouds and infrastructure than they ever thought possible. As more customers move to hybrid clouds, it will be vital to have a platform that can manage distributed systems across heterogeneous infrastructure. Hyper-V integration makes this a reality for many customers.”

With this new release, Morpheus now works seamlessly across Azure, Hyper-V, VMware, OpenStack, AWS, and more.
