Know How - VMware
VMware Server is discontinued
Because VMware Server is discontinued, VMware now provides no more Type 2 Hypervisor for use in Servers anymore. There still is VMware Player, which is quite usable, but it is incapable to run as a service. There are rumours that VMware Workstation can be run as a service, however I cannot recommend to run a Workstation product on a Server environment (and it is not free, so you cannot head-start).
Therefor I now start to switch over to VirtualBox
(which is Free Software) as this has support by Oracle (in contrast to QEmu). Everything which still applies will be kept here, the old pages of discontinued products are moved to old
Good Bye to VMware from a paying customer. (I used to own VMware Workstation but I will not upgrade it for Windows 7.)
I really do not know why VMware goes this wrong step, because VMX is not even the slightest replacement for VMware Server.
