  39. 39. How VMware Workstation Works • Workstation installs on a host Windows or Linux OS and runs like an application • OS and associated applications are encapsulated as a virtual machine that then runs on Workstation • Each virtual machine has its own virtual CPU, memory, disks, I/O devices, etc. • Each virtual machine is like a physical x86 machine
  40. 40. Result: One Physical Machine, Many Virtual Machines Run multiple operating systems simultaneously on a single PC in fully networked, portable virtual machines (VMs).
  41. 41. Key Advantages of Virtual Machines Isolation Each virtual machine is isolated from the host and other virtual machines Efficiency No need to dual-boot or repartition hard drives Encapsulation Each entire virtual machine state is a portable, reusable set of files Robust Networking Create complex networks in a box. Compatibility Virtualization eliminates hardware incompatibilities
