I plan to set up a virtualized test- and demo environment to show our clients how wonderful some applications can be deployed as containers. To be mobile I plan to use my laptop as the hardware platform. So far, simple. Now, as I prefer to work with linux, I was thinking about installing linux directly onto the machine and use KVM to host all the VMs I need for my environment. However, in our company there is a policy to use windows on company hardware. So, for compliance reasons I am not allowed to run linux directly on the machine, or at least I need to have a Win10 installation to boot from at work to show I am obedient and so on.
Now my question: Can I boot Win10 when I am at work and use VMware Workstation to start up all my (Linux) VMs and show off my demo environment at work and then after hours go home, boot my laptop into linux and use KVM and the same VM images to start up my whole virtual environment again? Will that just work or would I have to use some conversion tools etc. onto my VM images? Mind: I do know VMware uses .vmdk and KVM uses .qemu, but I´d love if any of the two hypervisor solutions could just work with the other one´s format.
If you know a way how I could pull this off I´d appreciate a reply.
Thanks a lot!
