VMware mail server | Sixth star Technologies

The VMware Server is a virtualization product that makes it possible to partition a single physical server into multiple virtual machines. VMware server works with Windows, Solaris, Linux and Netware, which can be used concurrently on the same hardware.Sixth Star technologies provide VMware mail server in Chennai a completely virtualized set of hardware and software to the guest operating system. VMware software virtualizes the hardware for the video adapters and 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 that become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly identical to the guest.

In practice, a system administrator that can pause operations on a virtual machine guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there is resume execution exactly at the point of suspensions. Alternatively, for enterprise servers, a feature called vMotions will allow the migration of operational guest virtual machines between similar but separate hardware to the hosts sharing the same storage (or, with vMotion Storage, separate storage that can be used, too). Each of these transitions that completely transparent to any users on the virtual machine at the time it is being migrated.

VMware Workstation, Server, and ESX take a more optimized path that is to running target operating systems on the host than that of emulators such as Bochs which simulates the functions of each and every CPU instructions on the target machines one-by-one, or that of dynamic recompilation which compiles the blocks of machine instructions the first time they execute, and then uses the translated code directly when the code runs subsequently to the Microsoft Virtual PC for MacOS takes this approaches. VMware mail server software does not emulate an instruction set for different hardware not physically present that This significantly boosts performance, but can cause the problems when moving virtual machine guest between hardware hosts using different instruction sets such as found in 64-bit Intel and AMD CPUs, or between hardware hosts with a differing number of CPUs. Software that is CPU agnostic can usually survive such a transition, unless it is agnostic by forking at startup.
