The only reason is that we just could not add every single feature we have been developing for VMware during past 5 years to another hypervisor in the very first release. However, our goal is to have the same feature set across hypervisors.
There is certainly no additional complexity - in fact, in case you missed - we have just added vPower (ability to run VM from backup file) for Hyper-V in Backup & Replication version 6.1 released 2 weeks ago, and this is obviously the cornerstone functionality of SureBackup and U-AIR.
We are still missing the virtual lab component, so the only vPower feature available for Hyper-V at this time is Instant VM Recovery. This, however, also means that you can already perform SureBackup and U-AIR process with additional manual steps (by performing Instant VM Recovery to the dedicated network).
Good luck with your comparison, I hope you are looking at Windows Server 2012 and its new Hyper-V for this purpose, because the current Hyper-V version is pretty lacking to say the least...
