VMware that provides cloud and virtualization software and services, and claims to be the first to commercially successfully virtualize the x86 architecture. VMware’s desktop software runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, while its enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi, are bare-metal hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.
VMware software provides a completely virtualized set of hardware to the guest operating system. VMware software virtualizes the hardware for a video adapter, a network adapter, and hard disk adapters. The host provides pass-through drivers for guest USB, serial, and parallel devices. In this way, VMware virtual machines become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly identical to the guest. In practice, a system administrator can pause operations on a virtual machine guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there resume execution exactly at the point of suspension. Alternatively, for enterprise servers, a feature called vMotion allows the migration of operational guest virtual machines between similar but separate hardware hosts sharing the same storage (or, with vMotion Storage, separate storage can be used, too). Each of these transitions is completely transparent to any users on the virtual machine at the time it is being migrated.

What Is a Virtual Machine?
To the Server Administrator, the virtual machine is just another machine/server. They just RDP to this system as they have done before. But what is a VM to a vSphere Administrator or to the Hypervisor. To us, the VM is nothing but a “bunch of files.” There are many files with various extensions that make up the VM. We could directly manipulate some of the files to affect the V M even though it might be reserved for advanced vSphere administrators. Many time, GUI gives you the control you seek so you don’t have to manipulate the files directly, but you can.
The advantage of doing this is that we previously used maybe 2 percent to 20 percent of our physical resources, since CPU and RAM were getting faster and comparatively cheaper. Now, after doing the virtualization, we can put multiple VMs on that same physical chassis from Dell (in our example) and each VM is isolated from the others. This isolation is important because if one of my VMs crashes, it will not have any effect on other VMs. Through consolidation, I have reduced the number of physical chasses I own. You will also see in the ICM and FastTrack classes that with many Fault Tolerant and Clustering methods available, we can protect this entire ESXi host along with all its VMs, if it were to fail.
Another advantage that we gain from consolidation is that, depending on the consolidation ratio you are implementing, you have reduced the number of machines you have purchased. This is not only a financial savings, it is space savings. Think about where you were putting these servers. They were all sitting in your Data Center, taking up a whole lot of space. Less rack space used means more savings. Also, more machines would have generated more heat; less heat means less air conditioning, providing even more savings.
Have you ever run into a dilemma: you want to purchase a physical server that doesn’t have to be that powerful, but vendors don’t usually sell hardware with lower configurations? Now, with virtualization, you can put those application servers in a VM, and you can have different CPU and RAM allocations for different VM set up the way you want them. The ESXi host does the resource sharing based on the allocation. You can do the carving of CPU and RAM per VM. This is called resource sharing, and is thoroughly covered in various VMware classes.
The VMware component that allocates CPU, Memory, and Input/Output is called Hypervisor. The installation of ESXi software right on top of the physical server (Dell Server in our case) is called bare-metal hypervisor architecture. So, an x86-based system running the virtualization layer directly is the bare metal hypervisor. This bare metal hypervisor option is common in real-life environments. There is another option, called the Hosted Virtualization (also referred to as Host-based virtualization), that is also available.
After taking the VMware class where you performed various labs on high-end servers you might want to practice the same labs at home. You might not have those high-end servers at home, but you still have your home desktop or laptop with your Windows OS or Linux OS installed. You can purchase VMware Workstation, reasonably priced, from VMware and install that on a Windows-based machine; VMware Fusion is available for MAC users. Then, on top of that VMware workstation or VMware Fusion you can create VMs with the Windows 2008/ Exchange setup we discussed before. Unlike the previous example, this is done on top of an OS like Windows, or Linux, or Mac OSX/Lion. Since this is hosted on one of these OSs, this is called a hosted solution. This might be perfect for your lab environment but not really recommended for a real production environment since you are then running these VMs (VM with Exchange or your databases) on VMware workstation that is itself running on top of your home version of Windows 7. I hope that screams NO to you as it does to me. Let’s get back to our bare metal solution.
If I still have a legacy OS like Microsoft’s Windows NT, for example, that I need to maintain in my production environment. Now, imagine that your existing Windows NT system is dead and you need to get that up and running fast. You don’t have those legacy servers anymore and the high-end new servers and their components might not be recognized by an older OS like Windows NT. This is a perfect candidate for virtualization because these I/O calls are going through the Hypervisor. So, another advantage of doing virtualization with VMware’s vSphere is that you have support for legacy OSs on your new hardware (ESXi Host). Now, I hope administrators of most environments will look at migrating to newer OSs and not continue using Windows NT, since its legacy.
Some Files that Make up a Virtual Machine So, what’s in these files? Well, everything. For example, we have a .vmx file that contains the configuration of the VM. The name of the file is going to be whatever you called the VM with the .vmx extension. What is in the .vmx file? .vmx is the main file for the VM. In the GUI, when you use the wizard to create the VM, all the answers to the wizard questions are in this file. This includes information on the Guest Operating System, Networking, and other things such as disk sizes. So, .vmx – a simple text file – is an important file that is stored in the same place where your VMs are stored. Another important file is the .vmdk file extension. Again, the name of the file is the name of the VM followed by the .vmdk extension. You can see this using your vSphere Client, selecting your VM, and looking at the properties/settings of the VM. Once you see the Datastore, you can right-click and select Browse Datastore from the menu. However, if you use the Storage Views tab (select the VM and click on the Storage Views tab) you will see all the files related to the VM. You will see the .vmx file and many more files. You will see the .vmdk file, but you will also see a file with -flat.vmdk, which was not visible when we did the right-click on Datastore and did Browse Datastore.
This Storage Views tab is showing you the correct information.
The .vmdk file is not the real disk content; it is just the virtual disk characteristics. The flat.vmdk file is the one that contains the virtual disk’s data (the real meat).
The .log files are very helpful when working with VMware support folks for troubleshooting
The .nvram is the actual VM BIOS. Just as in the physical machine, the VMs have BIOS settings, too.
The .vmsd is for VM’s snapshots.
The .vmsn is the state of the RAM of the VM if you chose to take the snapshot of the memory.
The .vmtx is the one you will see if you are using Templates. This is good if you are deploying multiple VMs and you don’t wish to sit and answer individual questions while going through installation wizards and various other prompts. Deploying from templates is very efficient use of your time and is covered in VMware classes in its own lesson. There are many more files out there that make up these VMs. We discuss these in the VMware ICM class and the VMware Fast Track classes. So, if the virtual machine is nothing but a bunch of files, it’s easy to move these files from one datastore to another datastore.
VM uses virtual hardware. The guest OS you are using in the VM has no idea that the hardware is virtual (remember, this will be defined in the .vmx file or through some GUI wizard you are going through). There have been many iterations of what hardware can be configured for the VM. This is called the hardware version
Using the windows based vSphere client to point to the vCenter where all the hosts are being managed gives you a nice centralized view. You can also use your existing Active Directory infrastructure to login and start assigning permissions for whomever in your organization can access what resources. Starting with vSphere 5.1, you also have a vSphere web client, which is more feature-rich compared to the previous version in 5.0. Certain actions, like creating a VM with Hardware version 9 can only be done using the vSphere web client currently, not with the Windows version of vSphere client. For now, we might be running both versions of vSphere client but looks like we will be moving to the web client so there is no dependency of Windows.
All these concepts would be discussed in detail in the VMWare training
