Which hypervisor is your hypervisor of choice? VMware ESXi, Proxmox, Microsoft Hyper-V, other?

I have experience using both VMware ESXi and Proxmox.

I really enjoy how Proxmox is open source and you don't have to pay money to unlock High Availability, backups, storage backends, etc. However, the interface can be challenging and the documentation isn't nearly as robust as documentation for VMware ESXi.

So for ease of use, I'd go with VMware ESXi but from a cost perspective and functionality perspective, I like Proxmox.

Thoughts?

We've started building our infrastructure on OpenStack, and that uses KVM. But OpenStack provides a better cloud platform than just using KVM with SolusVM or Softaculous Virtualizor, as if your node goes down, your Cloud VM comes up moments later on another node.
KVM has native support in Linux, so that's why we are happy with it, and it's getting better all the time.

Ah, I have limited experience with OpenStack. But that does sound interesting; I need to create some VMs and try some backups. Do you find the Horizon interface fairly intuitive?
