VMware Virtualization is a software-based application that acts like a physical computer. It makes simpler for the users to run and work on multiple systems in a single computer. VMware Products provides the platform for networking & security, ability to work from anywhere. VMware virtualizes each virtual machine as a hardware, virtual CPU, hard disk & network interface card. It creates a virtual environment such as virtual apps, storage & network, servers. Vmware Virtualization makes the cost-effective because due to this it reduces the cost of incurring IT expenses. Virtualization can be done for all sizes of businesses.
What are the benefits of VMware virtualization?
Virtualization increases the scalability and flexibility in the operation of the business. The products of VMware increase the availability of the resources & its performance. Here are some advantages of virtualization.

How does Virtualization Works?
The software that is installed in the physical system for the virtualization called it a hypervisor. After installing this hypervisor software it acts as a virtual machine. The virtualization of a computer is based on the installing of software. This makes users work and run multiple systems only in one system as a virtual machine. It means you can run more than one virtual system in a single server.

What are the types of VMware Virtualization?
VMware virtualization is for server virtualization, Network virtualization, and desktop virtualization. Let us discuss all these three virtualizations.
Server virtualization means the virtualization of a “server”. in this a physical server is divided or virtualized into small multiple servers. This makes a particular server to use their resources efficiently and maximum. This named a virtual private server. VMware server virtualization enables for run multiple operating servers in a single server. Benefits of Virtualization is given below:
- Simplified disaster recovery
- Improve server security
- Increased application performance
- Reduced operating cost
- Higher IT agility and efficiency
They also offer some add on tools that will help you in using VMware software easily. Some of the tools are free of cost and some are paid. Let’s know about it in Brief through What is Vmware Tools.
