Hyper-V I'm sure has some great stuff in it as well but VMware is so far ahead of everyone its almost unfair. Cost-wise I'm sure Hyper-V will look much more enticing since it "comes" with Windows and can run on Windows Core as well but VMware does something similar with ESXi.

A tad late on the quote, but I agree with the sentiment. For now, my vote goes to VMWare.

I have a good experience of working on VMWARE virtualization software and found very comfortable working with it. It has one of the best GUI to work with and there are lot more features to explore within it.
Virtualization software are built mostly for serving cluster support management. Please make that you have the latest vmware updates so that it has the ability to run on specific hardware requirement.
vmware is the best in the market.
