Learning VMware Workstation for Windows: Implementing and Managing VMware’s Desktop Hypervisor Solution
Master VMware Workstation to create and run virtual machines, containers, and Kubernetes clusters simultaneously on physical devices without having to reformat or dual boot the underlying device. This book provides a practical, step-by-step guide to creating and managing virtual machines using VMware Workstation, a software solution that provides a type-2 hypervisor, or desktop hypervisor, that runs on x64 Windows and Linux-based operating systems. This book focuses on the Windows version.
You’ll start with an overview of hypervisors and desktop hypervisors. You’ll then look at resources, such as CPU, memory, and networking, and how they are configured in a virtual environment. In the final chapters, you’ll learn how to configure Workstation Pro to run and manage virtual machines before going on to build example virtual machines, including how to build a nested vSphere environment. Once built you’ll see how to manage these virtual machines, before finally upgrading your VMware Workstation Pro environment.
