I have a question from my customer whether our products can run on vmware?. I started to think about vmware after, why vmware ?

IBM, SUN, Microsoft, as well as other companies, all offer technologies to define virtual machines, that allow separate operating system environments to run concurrently on one physical machine. Today, the main drivers for running business applications on virtual machines are the following:

  • Reduced maintenance effort: Maintaining each application in its own operating system environment within a virtual machine makes it much easier to upgrade different applications with different operating system requirements
  • Hardware consolidation: Using less machines, for the same number of tasks, allows a reduction of hardware and infrastructure costs
  • Improved energy efficiency: Using less machines, for the same number of tasks, reduce the energy required from the systems and to cool computer rooms.
