VMware Server

VMware Server

VMware Server installs on any existing server hardware and partitions a physical server into multiple virtual machines by abstracting processor, memory, storage and networking resources, giving you greater hardware utilization and flexibility.

VMware Server enables users to quickly provision new server capacity by partitioning a physical server into multiple virtual machines. Users can provision a new server in minutes, run Windows and Linux on the same server, increase the utlization of a physical server, move and migrate virtual machines, and capture the state of an entire virtual machine and roll back to that state with the click of a button
