We have a windows based application (associated to Hardware - Weight Bridge) which is installed on our HP Desktop machine; The application communicates with external hardware/Software using;
1. Com Port.
2. RJ45 - For LAN
3. USB Port;
Printer; LAN and a hardware attached with COM Port;
My purpose is to make the up time maximum of the windows based application, in case of Hardware failure.
I am thinking to introduce - VMWARE - i.e. Install virtual PC on my desktop; and take the back up of my virtual PC.
In event of failure - I'll install the VMWARE - on different piece of hardware (desktop), be it of different configuration and model (Say Dell or Lenovo/IBM);
And restore my virtual PC from the back up which I have take as mentioned above.
Am I right as said above. Will this system work.
If yes, which version of VMWARE License should I procure.
Thanks & Regards,
