What operating system and virtualization of IT infrastructure are relevant to this project?

Dear colleagues,

Hello! Tell me, please, operating system and virtualization environment for the project. Infrastructure virtualization: enterprise portal, shared folders, mail.
Have experience with Hyper-V, but there were preconditions for transition to a Linux platform. At this point I want to explore solutions and develop the infrastructure in this direction.

Have read similar questions, could not choose. From the requirements, would like a sufficient amount of documentation to study so the decision was popular with the larger community. Restrictions on system resources is secondary.

KVM. In what form you will use (RHEV, Openstack, proxmox) - already pohren =)
It is better to learn hands to cook it, by the way.

Look at ProxMox, quite popular solution is as containers and new path out of the box.

It all depends on the task and the budget.
If Your environment is on windows, it seems, and to build virtualziation better on Hyper-V. If you intend to use linux, then again, it all comes down to the task. Important parameters such as occasionalist, live migration, etc., on these criteria you can think what to take (paid or free solution).
From native linux KVM works very well. Well documented, quite easy to manage.
Container can you recommend openvz. Also a lot of good documentation. Stable performance and very convenient management tool.
Both data virtualization free.

VMware. After him looking at the rest .. there is a feeling that the knee is doing everything. =)
Thanks for the reply. And what about licensing? There are free options? - magnus_Senger commented on September 26th 19 at 06:34
