USER REVIEWS

Open and test various applications quickly using different operating systems

When we hear the words “virtual machine” for the first time, it may sound complicated and technical. But when we get familiar its function, that’s when we get to appreciate its features and various uses. VMware Workstation offers a virtual machine that can run diverse applications using different operating systems at the same time. You can use it on Windows, Linux and other OS. You can test and assess multiple programs in a stable environment. What I find very practical about this software is that I can use only one PC to do all these activities. Moreover, if you are using a Windows 8.1 computer, VMware Workstation 10 can now convert it to a virtual machine which is great. You will be able to work faster and easier with the use of this powerful and valuable software. The developer also released an update to fix issues with this program. If your work is related to the technical field, you will find this software very helpful.

Pros

  • Support for Windows 8.1 is provided
  • Works well with Linux and Windows

Cons

  • Software needs high computer requirements

Relevant Issues Resolved with the Release of the Free 10.0.1 Update

By Christine Diaz

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014

My workstation is commonly known as the area or personal space where I, or any employee, work. It has a computer, table, and chair, with all the work paraphernalia that an employee needs. The area or space is usually limited within a cubicle or office partition. In the information technology world, a workstation is very different. It is a special computer with the main purpose of managing and operating scientific or technical applications. VMWare’s Workstation is a popular brand with such functions.

In the 10.0.1 update, VMWare was able to resolve some known issues with their Workstation. Its Easy Install function was added with support for release to manufacturing (RTM) versions of MS Windows including 8.1 and Server 2012 R2. The problem with the VMWare Player, that comes along with the Workstation, where it freezes whenever other apps freeze was resolved as well.

What makes VMWare’s workstation so popular is perhaps its support of many operating systems. What’s more, in the release of the 10.0.1 update, VMWare improved the compatibility of their Workstation with CPUs based on AMD.

Pros

  • Supports many operating systems from various developers
  • Resolved many known previous issues

Cons

  • It requires high computer specifications

THE PERFECT VIRTUALISATION TOOL THAT MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO RUN MULTIPLE OPERATING SYSTEMS IN ONE COMPUTER

By Dann Kamau

On Friday, March 6, 2015

VMware Workstation 10.0.4

This is a very powerful utility designed for professional users who would like to run multiple operating systems in one main computer known as the system server. The server serves several workstations from where people carry out their work. This is what is known as Networked systems and it would not make any economic sense to have servers running only one operating system. Many companies e.g Banks, Insurance companies etc find this setup ideal as they have many different activities requiring different programs developed to run in different operating systems like Linux, Windows, Dos etc. A Bank will have the financial system running in Linux, email and electronic banking in Windows and their accounting processes in Dos etc.

VMware Workstation enable you to run multiple virtual machines on your PC, allows for extensive testing and development of complex networked server. Through its robust and powerful engine, it makes it easier for developers to introduce virtual infrastructure to a computer and increase productivity. Everything said you will agree that the utility is a fast and practical tool to use if you need a virtualization utility which will greatly decrease workloads.

Pros

  • Makes it possible fro multiple OS to run in one computer
  • Makes it possible for you to create many virtual machines

Cons

  • Software requires a lot of computer resources
