Hyper V and Asterisk

Hello everyone

We are currently in the planning stages of virtualizing our network infrastructure. We are compareing the pros and cons of using Hyper V and VM ware.

Hyper V is a newer technology and im wondering if anyone has experienced/heard anything about virtualizing Asterisk on that system?

I know it has the capability to virualize linux based systems but our “phone guy” has told me that he “researched” and that Hyper V wont run linux… i honestly dont trust him or his techinical know how.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks much
