How does VMware memory ballooning work?

Transparent Page Sharing is one of the methods to avoid redundant page/memory allocation . Balloon driver will not be present if vmware tools are not installed .

If reservation is not specified , the non-reserved memory is always swappable to disk . So whenever there is memory pressure on the host , the old pages are swapped to disk and pages freed from swap is provided to the guest .

How do you install windows 7 on vmware view?

You Don't!

You install windows 7 in a virtual machine with VMware Infrastructure, you then setup the VMware view servers with your AD. Then you install the tiny Vmware View agent on the windows 7 computer which is then streamed through the View server with you windows Credentials straight to you. the computer is not sent to you, instead a video of the computer's screen is sent to you. that is how it works.

What file system is used by vmware?

Virtual Machine File System is Cluster_file_system. It is used by VMware_ESX_Server,

It was developed and is used to store Virtual_machinedisk images, including snapshots. Multiple servers can read/write the same filesystem simultaneously, while individual virtual machine files are locked. VMFS volumes can be logically "grown" (non-destructively increased in size) by spanning multiple VMFS volumes together. It is not mandatory to use VMFS with VMware; an alternative is http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Network_File_System_(protocol).

What is the relationship between a guest operating system and a host operating system in a system like VMware what factors need to be considered in choosing the host operating system?

A host operating system is the operating system that is in direct communication with the hardware. It has direct hardware access to kernel mode and all of the devices on the physical machine. The guest operating system runs on top of a virtualization layer and all of the physical devices are virtualized. A host operating system should be as modular and thin as possible to allow the virtualization of the hardware to be as close to the physical hardware as possible, and so that dependencies that exist in the host operating don't restrict operation in the guest operating system.

How does the VMware FileSystem Sync Driver vmsync work?

The VMware FileSystem Sync Driver (vmsync) is a new feature that

creates backups of virtual machines.

Creating quiesced snapshots using the SYNC driver requires waiting for I/O to

drain in the guest operating system. This might affect time‐sensitive applications,

such as DBHammer.

If you do not install the SYNC driver when installing VMware Tools, you can avoid

the delay caused by the I/O draining. However, it results in snapshots being only

crash‐consistent, unless you provide custom quiescing through pre‐backup and

post‐backup scripts in the guest

If the guest operating system is Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or other

newer Windows operating systems, a Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS)

module is installed. For other, older Windows operating systems, the

Filesystem Sync driver is installed. These modules enable backup applications

to create application-consistent snapshots. During the snapshotting process,

certain processes are paused and virtual machine disks are quiesced.

Is it vmware is a virtual server?

Yes/No

That answer is no because VMware's main product is a hypervisor called ESXI, this Linux-based operating system is directly installed to the computer, it then hosts other virtual computers and servers, and serves them up to the users.

But the answer is also yes because VMware's main product can also be installed as a virtual machine on top of VMware's ESXI server, so it's up to the administrator whether or not it becomes a virtual server or a server that serves up virtual machines. The reason why VMware's ESX would be made into a virtual machine would be for development and experimental environments before initiating a full production environment, this is standard practice to iron out any bugs that may occur.

What is virtualization?

Virtualization means creation of virtual things like virtual storage device, server or network resources. Storage virtualization is done by pooling of different physical storage from multiple networks to form a single storage device. Server virtualization is done by masking of server resources. Network virtualization is done by combining the available resources in a network and by splitting the available bandwidth in to channels each of which are independent of other and each can be assigned to a particular server. Basically virtualization is done to utilize and manage the available resource properly. Server virtualization gives organizations the flexibility they need to respond the changing business requirement. Virtual servers reduce the physical resources. This gives organizations the ability to extend protection to additional applications and data with the same or fewer resources.

While doing research on virtualization i came across a site which provides virtualization solutions.
