Overall Satisfaction with VMware Workstation Pro

VMware Workstation Pro is a tool we use to simulate or to make tests on operative systems or production machines without being to deal with possible performance impact or disasters in the production infrastructure. We recently migrated our production server from Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2019 and VMware Workstation Pro was a crucial tool to make all the tests on our migration plan before even touch our actual infrastructure.
  • Test new software on an actual server, previously virtualized
  • Make all the changes to our production server before deploy
  • Deal with real problems without any impact on production infrastructure
  • We found that some network settings were hard to set up
  • We could reduce the number of Windows Server license thanks to make previous test on an virtualized environment
Oracle VM VirtualBox is a great solution if you search for a zero cost solution. But if you can afford it, VMware Workstation Pro is a more professional solution
