VMware Workstation Pro can save the state of a virtual machine (a “snapshot”) at any instant. These snapshots can later be restored, effectively returning the virtual machine to the saved state, as it was and free from any post-snapshot damage to the VM.
Multiple Virtual Machines
VMware Workstation includes the ability to group multiple virtual machines in an inventory folder. The machines in such a folder can then be power on and power off as a single object, useful for testing complex client-server environments.
