What is WMware and ESXi/ESX Server?

VMware is a virtualization system allowing multiple instances of desktop or server operating systems to run on a single physical computer. The desktop edition of VMware runs on top of an existing system (e.g. Windows, Linux etc.), while VMware ESXi/ESX Server is a dedicated operating system that can host multiple virtual PCs without requiring a host OS.

plus..
What is VMFS and VMDK?

VMware ESXi/ESX Server uses its proprietary file system called VMFS to format a physical partition on a hard drive. Virtual disk images representing virtual PCs are stored on VMFS partitions as files in VMDK format.

DiskInternals VMFS Recovery™ is a VMware recovery tool which offers a safe, easy way to recover information stored on VMFS-formatted disks. Like any other storage media, VMware disks can get damaged by software and hardware faults. Bad blocks and physical corruption of hard drives storing the virtual disk images can also cause corruption of VMware VMDK images.

These companies believe that their data is very important.
