VMware Workstation is an extensive suite of operating system virtualization software. Also known as virtual machine software. Put simply it is a program that allows operating system emulation.
With your primary hardware running an operating system like WIndow, it is possible to create a virtual platform within this operating system using a range of different various operating systems. VMware Workstation supports all popular Windows, Solaris, GNU / Linux, NetWare and many, many other systems. This would allow you to run a Windows operating system on a Windows operating system. You could also run a VM in a VM in a VM if you had the computing power to do so.

  • The web interface allows you to share and access all installed virtual platforms from a PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone or browser.
  • The new version of the program has also been equipped with the function of building your own cloud.
  • Systems virtualization solutions allow you to run applications written for Linux, Windows and other systems on one computer without the need to restart the computer. This solution also allows you to test the application in an isolated environment, which increases the level of security.

VMware Workstation is the first virtualization program to offer support for 3D graphics in virtual environments, including support for desktop effects such as Windows Aero.
