KVM and Open Virtualization are at the heart of delivering flexibility, performance and cost savings that free customers from single-source hypervisor solutions that lock you in. This session will dive deep into the license, subscription and support costs that showcase a comparison of KVM versus other industry alternatives. We will look at different operating environment scenarios, volumes, acquisition costs, and 3-year TCO for KVM versus VMware and Microsoft solutions.
