I am new to vmware but I want to learn more about vmware and unix virtualization.
1. What are the differences between vmplayer and vmware?
2. Is it possible for multiple virtual machines share the same unix filesystem? But each virtual machine may have slightly different runtime configurations?
3. Considering many multi-cores CPU’s that power the virtual machines today. Are there any benefits of having multiple virtual machines where each vm hosts multiple instances of the same type of application, as oppose to one big virtual machine alone hosts all enterprise applications?
4. Are there any links that explain vmware and virtualization?
