Vmware Review Jan 5, 2007
Everything I have seen from Rob Bastiaansen has been excellent. This Vmware book is no exception.
specialised usages Feb 6, 2006
VMware is the most common commercially available virtual machine code. This book is a quick guide to how to install and use it. You should be pleased to know that the host operating system can be Microsoft or linux. However, you are restricted to an Intel CPU. A basic difference between VMware and emulation is due to this. There is no emulation of another CPU.
The book suggests several possible usages for VMware, based on customer experiences. Perhaps simply to standardise an environment for your users, if the applications they will run can do so with the performance loss involving in a virtual machine. You do need to be clear on this.
Another reason for using VMware, that does not seem to be mentioned, is if you are running a honeypot or an intrusion detection system, and want an extra level of protection.
Very Good for 4.5 Users - Good tips for new 5.0 Users Oct 24, 2005
Good for new VMWare users, especially if using Workstation 4.5. Good tips for new users using VMWare version 5.0. Covers Netware and Windows clustering, including using iSCSI. Also covers version GSX and ESX. If using GSX or ESX versions exclusively instead of Workstation ...... you may want to search further.
