VMware Fusion: Desktop Hypervisors for Mac
As a student and Mac user, there were times when I required different operating systems on my laptop. VMware Fusion resolved my problem and gave me the best of both worlds. With just a few clicks, I was able to run multiple operating systems on my laptop.
VMware Fusion also gave me a great virtualization environment. VMware Fusion's installation is straight forward. With its easy user interface and multiple features like capturing snapshots, changing the networks etc., made my work easy. Dealing with the disk partition or assigning the RAM to the new OS has always been a simple process. Ultimately, I was happy to be able to use my laptop and the virtual OS both at the same time rather than switching between two different laptops with two different OS.
Often, we use it to run Windows on our Macs and in my experience, and for the most part, it's been pretty smooth. We use our Windows machine to access different servers, our domain controllers for example. We also use VMWare Fusion to run Windows machines for testing, so that we are able to test IT changes (for example, something with group policy) before pushing them out.
We also use WMWare Fusion to take snapshots as a basis for our Windows image that we use on all of our Windows machines. Other users in the company use VMware Fusion to run a Windows machine on a Mac, as well, so that they can install and use different financial software. We also have developers that use it to run quality assurance testing.
