Book Description

Virtual technology has been around for years, but only recently has it really taken off with the introduction of products such as VMware’s Player, Oracle’s Virtual box, and Microsoft’s Hyper-V. Each of these companies has begun to leverage virtualization in a reliable, secure, and scalable fashion to help businesses reduce their production costs.

Instant VMware Player for Virtualization will give you practical experience with virtualization. VMware Player is a free product that can be used to evaluate and test software platforms in almost any operating system environment.

The power of virtualization is robust if done well; it can save you a lot of time and financial resources. This book provides you with a quick and easy process for creating a virtual machine and setting it up to function properly in your home or business location.

The topics covered in this book will include practical guides to installing the Windows 8 operating system on a virtual system. The information provided is also formatted in an easily-digestible recipe format. If you want to take advantage of the free VMware Player application, then this is the book for you.

You will learn everything you need to know to create virtual machines as well as how to configure them in your VMware Player console to kick start your knowledge of virtualization concepts.
