Default What is VMware exactly?

What exactly is VMware? Im pretty knowledgeable about servers and such, but never heard of the term. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I feel a little ridiculous not knowing what it stands for..

VMware is virtualization software, and also the name of the company that created it. Do you have any experience at all with virtualization with your current company?

Actually vmware is totally changed the concept of servers. I never expected that virtualization would do such a thing....

Well, the wikipedia link provided by KenB is enough to give a proper and detailed information about the topic VMware. Usually, web hosting providers use it to form virtual private servers. Nowadays, most of the web hosting companies have switched from other virtualization software's to VMware because of the enhanced features it offer.

VMware works by loading a small, efficient operating system, or hypervisor directly on the host hardware. The VMware hypervisor has a small footprint and is extremely efficient, with a very small (1%) overhead. Device drivers for nearly all major brand devices are available from VMware. These are loaded during the configuration process.
