Experience Server Virtualization
Begin enjoying the benefits of server virtualization with the free VMware Server. VMware Server installs on any existing server hardware and partitions a physical server into multiple virtual machines by abstracting processor, memory, storage and networking resources, giving you greater hardware utilization and flexibility. Streamline software development and testing and simplify server provisioning as you utilize the ability to "build once, deploy many times."
- Provision a new server in minutes without investing in new hardware
- Simplify IT testing of patches, new applications and operating systems
- The benefits of server virtualization can be realized by a company of any size
Start Achieving the Benefits of Virtualization
The free VMware Server is based upon VMware’s proven virtualization technology. With this robust yet easy to use software you can:
- Streamline software development and testing by allowing developers to create multiple environments with different operating systems on the same server.
- Simplify IT testing of patches, new applications and operating systems by allowing systems administrators to test in secure virtual machines and be able to roll back to a clean state by leveraging snapshots.
- Simplify server provisioning by building a virtual machine once and deploying it multiple times.
- Evaluate software in ready-to-run virtual machines without installation and configuration.
- Re-host legacy operating systems such as Windows NT Server 4.0 and Windows 2000 Server in a virtual machine running on new hardware and operating system.
- Leverage pre-built, ready-to-run virtual appliances that include virtual hardware, operating system and application environments. Virtual appliances for Web, file, print, DNS, email, proxy and other infrastructure services are available for download on Virtual Appliance Marketplace.
