Using VMWare actually cost more when using Windows Servers VM since you'll have to pay for both VMWare & Windows Server licenses.

re: 9 Reasons Microsoft Hyper-V 3 Is Enterprise-Class
let me see if an example will help here, ESX01 is connected to shared storage and local storage, you can SvM from local to shared and vice versa, ESX01 is connected to local storage and ESX02 is connected to local storage you cannot SvM. Hyper-V3 you can. hope this helps. Elias Khnaser

Good points, the problem is that for every Hyper-V host one has to buy an expensive Windows Server license. Xen, KVM, and VMWare are much less expensive, even with the services added.

I have to disagree with Storage Live Migration requiring shared storage. I have successfully used storage vmotion with ESXi 4.1 for moving powered on VM's from one local SAS drive to another. You can move VM's from local drives to shared datastores and vice versa.
