VMware Workstation is a hypervisor that enables users to set up multiple virtual machines (VMs) and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine. Each virtual machine can execute its own operating system, such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, or BSD variants. As such, VMware Workstation allows one physical machine to run multiple operating systems simultaneously.

VMware Workstation - No Experience Necessary shows readers how to install VMware Workstation on Windows or Linux, create virtual Machines, take into account vital aspects such as configuring and networking in virtual environments, setting up a DMZ-test environment on a single machine, and accessing Virtual Machines running on other computers.

This practical guide not only teaches readers to multiply virtual machines using clones and easily revert to a previous VM state using snapshot technology, but it also helps them to upload virtual machines to the cloud and vSphere while sharing virtual machines with VMware Player users.

The book covers the following topics:

Chapter 1: Installing VMware Workstation

Chapter 2: Installing Virtual Machines

Chapter 3: Working with Virtual Machines

Chapter 4: VMware Workstation behind the Scenes

Chapter 5: Networking VMware Workstation

Chapter 6: Accessing Virtual Machines Remotely

Chapter 7: Converting Virtual Machines

Chapter 8: Cloning and Snapshots

Chapter 9: Sharing Virtual Machines
