VMware software provides a completely virtualized set of hardware to the guest operating system. VMware software virtualizes the hardware for a video adapter, a network adapter, and hard disk adapters. The host provides pass-through drivers for guest USB, serial, and parallel devices. In this way, VMware virtual machines become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly identical to the guest. In practice, a system administrator can pause operations on a virtual machine guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there resume execution exactly at the point of suspension. Alternately, for enterprise servers, a feature called VMotion allows the migration of operational guest virtual machines between similar but separate hardware hosts sharing the same storage. Each of these transitions is completely transparent to any users on the virtual machine at the time it is being migrated.


  1. The recent version of the VMWare is VMWare Workstation 7. This is not a freeware.

    For freeware use the vmware player.

    This player will able to use all hardware of the computer for virtual machines.

  2. Developers who wants to use any operating system on current OS the VMWare is useful.

    For network developers who wants work with network performance and characteristics can use the VMWare.
