Vmware Workstation 10
VMware Workstation is a hypervisor that runs on x64 computers; it enables users to set up one or more virtual machines (VMs) on a single physical machine, and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine.
Leading Edge PC Virtualization
VMware Workstation transforms the way technical professionals develop, test, demonstrate and deploy software by running multiple x86-based operating systems simultaneously on the same PC. Built on 15 years of virtualization excellence and winner of more than 50 industry awards, VMware Workstation takes desktop virtualization to the next level by giving users an unmatched operating system support, rich user experience and incredible performance.
State of the Art Desktop Virtualization for Windows and Linux
VMware Workstation takes advantage of the latest hardware to replicate server, desktop and tablet environments in a virtual machine. Run applications on a breadth of operating systems including Linux, Windows® and more at the same time on the same PC without rebooting. VMware Workstation makes it really easy to evaluate new operating systems, test software applications and patches, and reference architectures in an isolated and safe environment. No other desktop virtualization software offers the performance, reliability and cutting edge features of Workstation.
Create Powerful Virtual Machines
With the ability to allocate multiple processor cores, gigabytes of main memory, and graphics memory to each virtual machine, Workstation maximizes your computer’s resources to run the most demanding applications in a virtual environment. Workstation also lets you build complex virtual machines on your laptop running Cloud Foundry™, Big Data applications like a single-node Apache™ Hadoop® cluster or 64 bit virtual machines within vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V Server.
From the PC to the Cloud
Seamlessly access all the virtual machines you need, regardless of where they reside, from the PC to the cloud. Simply drag and drop to move your virtual machines from your PC to the private cloud with VMware vSphere® or the public cloud with vCloud Air. By leveraging the hybrid cloud you are no longer constrained by the power of your PC and can quickly migrate and scale your workloads to the cloud while reducing complexity and compatibility.
Take Control of Your Virtual Machines
Workstation gives technical professionals powerful controls over how to set up and interact with virtual machines. Choose from a wide variety of options for installing, protecting, connecting, sharing and viewing virtual machines to save valuable time. You can even create virtual machines that are encrypted, require a change of password and expire at a predefined date and time. Use the virtual network editor to build up to 20 custom virtual networks for connected multi-tier applications. Leverage the Snapshot feature to preserve the state of a virtual machine so you can return to it at any time.
Share Your Virtual Machines
Sharing a virtual machine is the quickest way to share and test applications with your team in a more production like environment. Run VMware Workstation as a server to share a repository of pre-loaded virtual machines in every desired configuration with your teammates, department or organization. VMware Workstation provides enterprise caliber control over user access when sharing virtual machines.
