10ZiG Technology

10Zig is well suited anywhere you would need multiple computer access within the same business without having PCs set up at each station. This is not just well suited for a business but for places like schools hospitals, etc. The virtual system replaces PCs which may have other features a user might want such as a disk drive.

VMware Workstation Player

VMware will work great for the following test scenarios:
  • Testing windows updates on a system
  • Testing a new software or a new software version
  • Creating a sandbox to test options/features of an OS
  • Creating different VM to test a software on different OS without the need to have physical machines for all of them
You can also use it as a "player" only where you have that static VM that you run from time to time as with my use for SAS University. Whenever you need to use the software, you simply start that VM.

VMware Workstation Player

  • VMware Player is easy to use.
  • VMware Player supports a wide variety operating systems.
  • Unity mode makes it easy for the end user to utilize needed legacy applications while maintaining their familiar Host OS desktop. It's seamless to the point where the end user doesn't know they're running applications from a VM.

Cons

10ZiG Technology

  • I have not had any issues. 10ZiG works as it should and does what it says it does.
  • I don't see any areas that need improvement.
  • It does what it does well.

  • Would be nice to use more VMs at once, but this is basically trial software, so it's hard to fault them.

I give a rating of 8 because VMware Player has its use cases, for example it requires the host OS to be logged in, and the VMware Player application to be opened and the Guest VM started. Only one VM can run at a time.I'd give a 9/10 to VMware Workstation because you can run shared VMs at startup without logging in or starting the workstation application.and i'd give ESX a 10/10 because ESX is the leader in enterprise visualization.

Great product. Its user-friendly GUI and overall performance are really the biggest strength of this tool. The reason why I don't give a higher note is because of the price. Although it's decent (starting at around $200 for a license), there is a good free alternative in VirtualBox. Not everyone values friendly GUI as something worth paying for. For people that are more tech-savvy, I would recommend looking into VirtualBox as they might actually like the model better (with downloadable add-ons and packages).

Integration isn't really relevant here but I see this question more as an OS compatibility for the VM. They state that they support over 200 different OS versions. I honestly have never tried anything else other than Ubuntu and Windows myself but nonetheless, this is impressive. I have not hit any limitation in my use of this software in terms of limitation or conflicts with other software.

In my experience the support for 10ZiG is has been really impressive. I have not had any major issues but any minor issues I have had about it were quickly resolved with their customer service. Any questions I have had were also quickly answered by either their customer care or by reviewing their online website.

VMware support is very knowledgeable on their products, eveything from AirWatch to ESX clusters. VMware is easy to contact, they stay in touch and see the issue through to the end and a final resolution. They keep you up to date on your issue status and don't leave you waiting for answers.

Installing the application was easily completed on the twenty computers that needed VMware Player. Once those 20 users were configured we copied our virtual machine template to the 20 users and turned on their newly provisioned virtual machines. We then configured unity mode so the user could easily work from within the virtual machine from their host desktop.

Alternatives Considered

10ZiG Technology

The VMware has more issues as far as crashing due to overuse and other seemingly unknown issues. There is a lot more stability with the 10Zig. The Dell was slower as well as being less user-friendly and much harder to set up, use and upgrade. 10ZiG has had a lot fewer glitches thane either of the others I have tried.

Both free, VMware supports USB 3.0 while VirtualBox does not. VMware supports nested hardware-assisted virtualization while VirtualBox does not.

Return on Investment

10ZiG Technology

  • Having 10ZiG units is less expensive than PCs.
  • Has increased productivity due to speed increased over PCs.
  • Power consumption is less for the 10ZiG.

  • For me the benefit was really high as I could use a solution that had a free educational version with VMware player. Without it, I would've needed to buy the SAS software itself which would have cost a few thousand dollars.
  • Although I have no details about the ROI, I know that software testing teams that use the software are saving a lot of money buy using virtual machines. It is obviously a great saving both in physical machine count but also in workstation lab sizes.
