By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Monday, November 24, 2014

Workstation is a highly technical topic in the computer world. In the office scenario, it is most commonly referred to as the area where we work or an individual’s work area, thus workstation. For PC enthusiasts however, not to mention network administrators or analysts, a workstation is a host computer, not just a server, which acts as a virtual machine that can control remote computers running on different operating systems. Such power can be found in one of the most popular workstation developed by VMWare. Not focusing on its negative side, VMWare’s initial release of their Workstation has resulted in the discovery of a number of known issues that were thankfully resolved with the release of their Workstation version 10.0.1. It was a phenomenal release do to the fact that it provided fixes to many problems with the software. In the previous versions, Workstation’s interface crashes whenever large virtual machines were cloned. It cannot launch when working in Linux OS. Hot plugged SATA virtual disks do not work as well. These are among the issues that I noticed that were resolved in this release.

Pros

  • User interface is more stable
  • Changes in Tools menu does not cause black screen anymore

When we hear the words “virtual machine” for the first time, it may sound complicated and technical. But when we get familiar its function, that’s when we get to appreciate its features and various uses. VMware Workstation offers a virtual machine that can run diverse applications using different operating systems at the same time. You can use it on Windows, Linux and other OS. You can test and assess multiple programs in a stable environment. What I find very practical about this software is that I can use only one PC to do all these activities. Moreover, if you are using a Windows 8.1 computer, VMware Workstation 10 can now convert it to a virtual machine which is great. You will be able to work faster and easier with the use of this powerful and valuable software. The developer also released an update to fix issues with this program. If your work is related to the technical field, you will find this software very helpful.

Pros

  • Support for Windows 8.1 is provided
  • Works well with Linux and Windows

Cons

  • Software needs high computer requirements

VMWare Finally Released a Free Update to Resolve Important Issues in their Workstation App

By Rose Sincro

On Friday, June 20, 2014

Though not entirely in charge of the server room in our office at work, I do know a thing or two about workstations. VMWare has done a good job when they released their first Workstation. Reviews were great until some computer enthusiasts noticed certain problems with the software. My friends from the IT department at work have similar stories about it. Thankfully, VMWare was finally able to resolve these problems.

To resolve the problems that users encountered with VMWare’s Workstation, they released the 10.0.1 update. It included fixes and enhancements that made their workstation a better choice. First, release to manufacturing versions of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and 8.1 is now supported by the workstation. Second, the built-in player no longer freezes whenever other running software freezes. It also fixed the problem where Workstation hangs during shutdown.

Lastly, improvements were implemented to make VMWare’s Workstation a better one. It is now compatible with AMD CPUs. It can now display correctly across multi-monitor hosts running in Windows, and it even when its Legacy Floppy does not work properly, it will boot from DVD or CD.

Pros

  • Can support various operating systems
  • Problems were resolved and improvements implemented

Cons

  • Host computer must have high specifications
