Most of our FEs have VMWare Workstation on their laptops, but we need to
have our VMs with much more memory than you are going to find on a
laptop. The server that we are using has 64GB, and we are pushing back
on IT because the server they wanted to send us has 128GB max.  BTW: We
have licenses for Workstation. The issue tends to be product related
that requires an Oracle Express db.
