Workstation

Workstation

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.

Component Recommendations

Processor 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 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.

Chassis Chassis

The Z840 is recommended if you require dual processors or dual high performance graphics cards. The Z840 can support up to 6 hard drives or 10 SSDs.

The Z640 is recommended if you require a single high-end processor or single high-performance graphics card. You can always add a second processor and double the memory at a later date using the optional Z640 processor riser. The Z640 can support up to 4 hard drives or 6 SSDs.

The Z440 is recommended if you require a single processor with a low core count or mid-range graphics card. The Z440 can support up to 4 hard drives or 6 SSDs.
