Why VMware is the best? VMware has a better approach to cloud security than other virtualization and cloud vendors with a new set of virtualization-aware security products that work with existing solutions to enable adaptive and cost-eective security and compliance within a single management framework.
What are the two types of hypervisors? There are two main hypervisor types, referred to as “Type 1” (or “bare metal”) and “Type 2” (or “hosted”). A type 1 hypervisor acts like a lightweight operating system and runs directly on the host’s hardware, while a type 2 hypervisor runs as a software layer on an operating system, like other computer programs.
What is the ESXi host? ESX hosts are the servers/data storage devices on which the ESX or ESXi hypervisor has been installed. The use of hypervisors such as ESX and ESXi to create VMs (virtualization) is highly efficient, as one host device can support multiple (up to a dozen or more) VMs.
What is the difference between ESX and ESXi? The primary difference between ESX and ESXi is that ESX is based on a Linux-based console OS, while ESXi offers a menu for server configuration and operates independently from any general-purpose OS.
