VMware or “virtual machine” ware is exactly what the name implies, a virtual machine on your computer. 

So how can this help businesses? It firstly helps create efficiency because they will have greater managed resources. The virtualization of a business server is the first step to reducing IT costs.

Virtualization uses various constraints, such as scheduling and partitioning to increase the flexibility of the computing environment which enables businesses to get the most out of their investment in hardware and resources 

VMware permits businesses to run multiple application and operating system workloads on one server, enabling better resource management.

When creating a virtual machine, you are creating a machine that behaves exactly like an actual computer, while VMware also allows everything running on that virtual machine to run in its own window.

This allows IT service providers the ability to install an operating system and the software of their choice on as many ‘virtual machines’ as they like. Each one is stored as a file on the hard drive.

IT professionals believe the biggest advantage of running VMware is the ability to install and test software without affecting your actual computer.

There are many advantages of VMware like software can run on a virtual machine that may not work on the operating system that you have installed.

Let’s say you have a Mac, and you want to run Windows programs, well you can install Windows on a virtual machine that will allow you to run Windows programs on your Mac.

It works also if you have a PC with a recent version of Windows. Use a VMware virtual machine to run a program designed for an older version of Windows.

If you’re a new business and excepting quick growth VMware is particularly suitable. It is generally safer because if you experience a problem with a virtual machine, you can simply delete it and create a new version.

Bottom-line, your actual physical computer remains operational.
