VMware

VMware

VMware Workstation is a hosted hypervisor that runs on x64 versions of Windows and Linux operating systems. It enables users to set up virtual machines (VMs) on a single physical machine, and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine.

Hardware Recommendations

Processor

The more virtualized servers running, the more resources will be required on the host system. We recommend 2-4 cores per virtualized machine.

Memory

It is recommended that each virtualized server is allocated with 16GB of RAM. Therefore depending on your use case, we recommend 32GB, 64GB or 128GB.
