VMware Workstation 4

Optimized for the power user, VMware Workstation is powerful virtual machine software that runs multiple operating systems and their applications simultaneously on a single PC in fully networked, portable virtual machines. VMware Workstation has revolutionized the way software and IT infrastructure is developed and deployed to become the corporate standard.

What Is VMware Workstation?

VMware Workstation is powerful virtual machine software for the desktop. Optimized for the power user, VMware Workstation runs multiple operating systems -- including Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Novell NetWare -- simultaneously on a single PC in fully networked, portable virtual machines. VMware Workstation provides more choice, greater flexibility, and more powerful functionality than any other virtual machine software in the marketplace today.

How Is VMware Workstation Used?

More than 1.4 million users worldwide use VMware Workstation to:
  • Streamline software development, testing, and deployment.
    VMware Workstation has revolutionized the way software and IT infrastructure is developed and deployed. You can build mission-critical Windows- and Linux-based applications, develop and test multi-tier applications on multiple operating systems simultaneously, and archive test environments on file servers and restore them quickly.

  • Ensure application compatibility and operating system migration.
    You can support legacy applications while migrating safely to a new operating system and test new operating systems prior to deployment. VMware Workstation creates a uniform platform for managing operating system and application updates.

  • Facilitate training and sales demos.
    VMware Workstation gives you the freedom to experiment with new applications or tools and lets you quickly restore your machine to a clean state for your next class. You can easily package and deploy classroom material. You can easily distribute and install demo software, and demo complex or multi-tier applications on a single laptop.

  • Improve software help desk and technical support.
    VMware Workstation lets you troubleshoot problems quickly and deliver quality customer service. You can replicate customer software configurations and instantly resume them for fast problem resolution.

How Does VMware Workstation Work?

VMware Workstation works by enabling multiple operating systems and their applications to run concurrently on a single physical machine. These operating systems and applications are isolated in secure virtual machines that co-exist on a single piece of hardware. The VMware virtualization layer maps the physical hardware resources to the virtual machine's resources, so each virtual machine has its own CPU, memory, disks, I/O devices, etc. Virtual machines are the full equivalent of a standard x86 machine.

With VMware Workstation:
  • Build complex networks - and develop, test, and deploy new applications - all on a single computer.

  • Leverage the portability of virtual machines to easily share development environments and pre-packaged operating system/application testing configurations without risk.

  • Add or change operating systems without repartitioning disks or rebooting.

  • Run new operating systems and legacy applications on one computer.

Why Does My Business Need VMware Workstation?

Since its launch in 1999, VMware Workstation has revolutionized the way software and IT infrastructure is developed and has become the de facto standard for IT professionals and developers worldwide. If your business is looking to simplify and accelerate development and testing of software and IT infrastructure, VMware Workstation is essential. When you deploy VMware Workstation in your environment you will:
