Before you start working with VMWare Fusion 8, there are a few things that you should be comfortable with beforehand. This includes understanding basic computer components like processors, memory, hard drives, networks, and peripherals.
- Before I get started with VMware Fusion, let's cover a few things you should know already. First, I'm going to assume that you're familiar with Macs, running OS X El Capitan and understand the basic components of the computer, such as processors, memory, storage, and devices, such as USB. You should also be familiar with the basis of networking, such as terms like ethernet and routers. This course does not have any exercise files, and you don't have to have Fusion 8 installed to follow along. This course covers local desktop virtualization only.
Cloud-based VMs are not covered in this course.
