What is vmware ? vSphere is called as vmware or ESX/ESXi are called as vSphere.

Can any one Kindly explain with full clear of vmware, vSphere,ESX ,GSX, and its terms....

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

VMware is the company, vSphere is the overarching virtualization platform for cloud infrastructure. Think of vCenter as a central management console for virtual machines and networks. ESX and ESXi are hypervisors (the difference being how they sit on hardware). GSX is not really used anymore, see VMware Server.

I would suggest reviewing this page by VMware for the overall idea and go through their knowledge base for more finite explanations.

It is one thing to define each of the terms and another to see how they fit together.

    Hi Bethel,

    I'd agree that there are many different VMware products, and it can be hard to keep them straight. I'd recommend checking out SearchVMware.com for more on all these products; you can also search for each specific product in the WhatIs.com definition database. Distinguishing among all these products might be a tall order for someone to do in an answer here.
