VMware

VMware was founded in 1998 and is based in Silicon Valley, California. VMware is the global leader in virtualization solutions, ranging from desktops and datacenters to cloud computing infrastructure. VMware's desktop software runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, while VMware's enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi, are bare-metal embedded hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.
