Description

Businesses are compelled to choose cost-effective solutions to minimize the use of resources. Additionally, experimenting with production equipment is never the right answer. Therefore, specialists often build home labs, safe environments for testing without high-cost expenses. Many businesses and developers use VMware home labs. After the introduction of VMware Workstation in 1999, home labs became available for all, not just enterprises aiming for secure testing environments.

Nowadays, millions of developers take VMware lab setup for home for learning to operate new software or incorporating new features into their projects. Nowadays, virtualization is one of the dominant choices for generating virtual versions of devices or systems. VMware is the leading provider of virtualization, and in this course, we will be taking a look at the creation of VMware home labs.

What are the VMware home labs?

Building a virtual machine server can sound expensive and complicated. However, the creation of home labs is less of a struggle than you imagine. First of all, it is necessary to observe the freedom for experimentation that these virtual labs provide. Passionate tech specialists can build safe environments and get hands-on experience in the fields of networking, cybersecurity, or software. Therefore, this VMware ESXi tutorial is versatile to anyone interested in designing their home lab.

What is VMware Workstation?

VMware Workstation is a virtual machine software that creates secure virtual machines. In other words, it lets you run multiple operating systems on a single device. Instead of spending resources on several hardware tools to complement actions on different OS, you can use one device to achieve multipurpose features you need.

What will you find in this course on VMware lab setup for home?

In this course on VMware home labs, we will begin by listing some of the main requirements. First of all, you need to make sure that your processor supports EM64T and VT. Secondly, you should check whether virtualization technology is enabled on your host. Lastly, I will discuss some of the VMware vSphere 6.5 LAB memory requirements. The more powerful CPU you have, the more flexibility your VMware home labs will offer.

This VMware ESXi tutorial is perfectly suitable for beginners in virtualization and creation of home labs. However, if you want to be a competitive IT specialist, home labs are essential for fast and efficient learning. I will explain how you should download the VMware Workstation Player, the ESXi and vCenter Server 6.5, and the Windows ISO images. After the initial steps, we will work towards building a virtual machine server and implementing other steps towards a functional home lab.
