My college uses VMware. To what extent I am not sure.
The issue is that they have the main student access website down every night from 12am to 6am for upgrades.
To my understanding using VMware will allow you to keep the site up while upgrades are being performed on another instance, then just switched over when upgrades have passed testing.
Am I correct in my understanding of this?
I use VMware Player and find it quite amazing, but have not had any experience with the business side of VMware.
Thank you for any advice in this. I am writing an email to the administration and would like to have something quantitative to say about the operations of VMware.
