    The ability to consolidate many physical servers into one physical server using virtual machines has led to dramatic changes in regard to business continuity and disaster recovery strategies for small and large organizations alike. When deciding on the best approach to implementing virtualization it is important to have a clear understanding of the different virtualization solutions which are currently available. The purpose of first chapter, therefore, is to describe in general terms the virtualization and its benefits in common use today, with the virtualization concepts, namely emulation, OS virtualization, paravirtualization and as the final solution, server consolidation. VMware has been a key leader in server virtualization for at least the last decade. One of the reasons that VMware continues to lead is that they continue to stretch the technology, as well as the imagination, of VMware Infrastracture 3 and with their next product vSphere. Why is that so, is explained in second chapter, where are described features of VMware Infrastructure (how they simplify management and reduce the complexity of working with virtual environments), with its benefits and management solutions, as well as the practical use of key features of VirtualCenter 2.5. The last chapter is describing the practical use of VMware main product, ESX Server 3.5. This chapter is based on practical example, how to install and deploy ESX Server 3.5, that involves performing effective planning of pre-installation requirements and postinstallation configurations, necessary for successfully deployment, that suit the needs of users and organizations.
