I'm familliar with Wmware Workstation but not with all other softwares from WmWare suite. So, could you give me some advices about points below:
I work in automation industry.
We have a lot a VmWare virtual machines (different OS with different software). Most software need to communicate with devices (PLC) by USB, Serial or Ethernet connection
Each developer need a development station with VmWare workstation/player software to connect to the devices.
Each development station requires to have all implemented virtual machine on it --> require lot of memory, difficulties with licences, maintainability issue,...
Is there a way to :
- Hold all these virtual machines on server and access them remotely (by wifi)
- Automatically Instantiate virtual machines if multiple need to use simultaneous same virtual machines?
- Manage licences on virtual machines?
- Use remote client ports (usb, serial, ethernet) as virtual machine ports
Thanks a lot for your advice.
