Your Guide to VMware

vmware logoVMware produces a range of virtualization software packages that allow a number of virtual machines to be run side by side, either from within an existing operating system, or by using VMware ESX Server, which is installed directly on server hardware.

VMware also has a number of free products, including the VMware Player, which can be used to run (but not directly create) virtual machines, and VMware vSphere Hypervisor (formally VMware ESXi), which is a limited version of the fully vSphere product.

This guide shows you how to use the VMware family of products, and also outlines some of the certifications that are available from VMware.
