Overall Satisfaction with VMware Workstation

From my personal experience, VMware Workstation is a wonderful software. I can use different development environments using a single machine (with very accelerated performances). Thanks to VMWare I can develop different solutions and perform tests and debugging easily without any risk and with an immediate rollback speed.


  • immediate rollback speed with VM Snapshot
  • connection with VSphere
  • no risk of unwanted impacts


  • requires a minimum of system knowledge
  • different VMs running at the same time can use a lot of resources
  • the machine running VM Workstation must be very high performing
  • time saved during the configuration of new machines
  • hardware saved compared to physical servers
  • centralized management of multiple environments and less management time
Scenarios in which this product is useful are if:
  1. you are a developer or you are often interested in new products
  2. you want to carry out extensive tests on certain products or features particularly impacting products that are already used in the company
  3. you have the intention to make particularly risky changes
  4. you can create specular environments and test everything on the virtual. machines
