I like to have a look at what people are reading on my blog from time to time. It gives me an idea of what is working, and sometimes, what is not – for example, I still get lots of hits on out-dated articles. Here are the 5 most viewed articles of the last year, from 5 to 1.
An oldie kicks off the charts … this trend continues throughout the top 5. At least this one is a good subject that is based on WS2012 and is still somewhat relevant to WS2012 R2. Replica is one, if not the, most popular features in WS2012 (and later) Hyper-V.
I wrote this article in 2010 for Windows Server 2008 R2 and it’s still one of my top draws. I really doubt you folks still are deploying W2008 R2 Hyper-V; I really hope you folks are not still deploying W2008R2 Hyper-V!!!! Join us in this decade with a much better product version.
Please note that the networking has change significantly (see converged networks/fabrics). The quorum stuff has changed a bit too (much simpler).
There’s nothing like kicking a hornets nest to generate some web hits We saw VMware’s market share slide in 2013 (IDC) while Hyper-V continued the march forward. More and more people want to see how these products compare.
And at number one we have … drumroll please …
Wow! I still cannot believe that people don’t understand how easy the licensing of Windows Server on VMware, Xen, Hyper-V, etc, actually is. Everyone wants to overthink this subject. It’s really simple: It’s 2 or unlimited created Window Server VMs per assigned license to a host people!!! This page accounted for 2.8% of all views in the last 12 months.
Sadly, not a single post from the last year makes it into the top 10. I guess that folks aren’t reading about WS2012 R2. Does this indicate that there is upgrade fatigue?
