VMware Workstation is a great compliment to your VMware environment.

  • The ROI on Workstation would be hard for us to compute. It makes things easier to do and to get access to, but there are other applications and methods to do much the same thing.
  • Where there has to be a some form of ROI is in the fact that you will actually do things that you might not otherwise do simply because Workstation makes them easier. Sandbox testing is a good example of this idea.

There is no Image that VMware Workstation cannot handle.

Return on Investment

  • Positive impact would be that VMware is a simple, inexpensive solution. To be able to run such other software you would need completely new hardware, but VMware can run it for you virtually, thus, the savings are incredible.
  • One VMware instance can run multiple instances of images simultaneously, therefore, it is very time-saving.

Throwing up Virtual Machines like a magic trick

Return on Investment

  • We wanted to make some tests in a controlled environment without the need to make a fresh install in a real computer that is in deployment state.
  • The ability to access, examine, and acquire various operating systems over a network is simpler when performed from the same operating systems.

VMware Workstation is a truly must have tool for modern IT professionals

Return on Investment

  • Could honestly not do our job without VMware Workstation - it is a true enabler
  • Very low price makes it a no brainer purchase decision - plus they have regular sales for 20-30% off an already low price
  • Has radically reduced hardware costs as we no longer deploy physical servers for all the different environments we need

Return on Investment

  • The time I'm having to spend testing/building windows images is reduced vs. hardware based image building and that time saved I'm able to better use for other projects to better serve our environment.
