Overall Satisfaction with VMware Fusion

VMware Fusion is being used by Mac OS users in our Platform Operations department. VMware Fusion provides us with the ability to quickly spin up development or testing environments and easily migrate them to our vCenter virtual environment if needed. It also allows us to seamlessly integrate required applications that only run on Microsoft Windows into the Mac OS experience.
  • Integrates other operating systems seamlessly with Mac OS.
  • Can cause your system fans to come on at full power at times but that may just be part of running multiple operating systems at the same time.
  • Fusion has allowed us to provide Mac users with the tools they need that only run on other operating systems at a minimal cost.
Fusion seems to run better than Parallels. It also is much more user friendly and intuitive to use.
Works great for anyone who needs to run additional operating systems while also running MacOS simultaneously. Great for easily standing up local testing or development environments. If you require Microsoft Windows it is more cost effective to run it virtually than to maintain separate hardware just for this purpose.
