VMware Server Overview

Virtualization allows multiple, resource-intensive applications to be run on one physical system. VMware ESX and VMware ESXi are bare-metal hypervisors, which can install directly on top of a physical server, sharing their resources with the host, and with each other. VMware Server is a hosted virtualization platform that can be installed like an application onto an existing server, allowing the creation of multiple virtual machines.
