About a week ago Scott Drummonds from VMware Product Marketing posted an “anonymous” video on YouTube (see below) supposedly exposing an outage on TechNet/MSDN (MS Ops have already confirmed NO OUTAGES experienced as a result of Hyper-V see here) and a bug with Hyper-V consolidation (the guy at VMware seems to have run the test using virtual SCSI assuming this would achieve the best performance). Jeff Woolsey (Microsoft Program Manager for Hyper-V), took the opportunity to look into this in greater detail:
