VMware Workstation is an operating system utility designed mostly for professional users who can develop to develop different activities according to their needs. With this program, you can create a cloud in your computer to access whenever you want, and use the highest demand applications.
With this software you can use 3D graphics, run with the support of Open GL 2.1 and DirectX 9.0c Shader Model 3, and in virtual machines such as Linux or Windows.
Create virtual machines
VMware Workstation runs security scans and analyses your operating system. It will keep everything under control and offer a huge amount of possibilities. Everything that could damage the integrity of your computer and its perfect functioning can be controlled at any time.
The main intention of VMware Workstation is to create virtual machines. What’s best is that there is no limit to the amount of virtual machines created, only what the hardware supports. It could seem quite complicated and, in fact it can be, depending on your user level. Nevertheless, if you’re a beginner you can still use it without taking advantage of all it’s tools.

- Improved 3D graphics
For further information about VMware Workstation, you can visit the official website .
For running the program you need to have a processor of 1 Ghz and also a RAM memory of 512MB. But, if you want to virtualise this system you also need to have a processor up to 3.0 Ghz and at least a RAM memory of 1GB.
Other alternatives to work in a virtual computer include VirtualBox. You can connect it with your personal computer and use it without disturbing the second, thus creating another version totally independent from Linux or Windows.
If you like VMware products, don’t hesitate in trying VMware Player, which also allows you to use several operating systems at the same time. It also detects all the hardware that your computer could have installed, such as video, networks or sound cards.
VMware Workstation allows you to work with several operating systems at the same time, in a cloud, with 3D graphics and analyses your computer looking for any problems or damages.
You have to register at the official website
You can only use it for 30 days
- Great advances in this version
- 3D graphics
- Wide compatibility
- Quite easy to use

VMware Workstation 10.0.4
This is a very powerful utility designed for professional users who would like to run multiple operating systems in one main computer known as the system server. The server serves several workstations from where people carry out their work. This is what is known as Networked systems and it would not make any economic sense to have servers running only one operating system. Many companies e.g Banks, Insurance companies etc find this setup ideal as they have many different activities requiring different programs developed to run in different operating systems like Linux, Windows, Dos etc. A Bank will have the financial system running in Linux, email and electronic banking in Windows and their accounting processes in Dos etc.
VMware Workstation enable you to run multiple virtual machines on your PC, allows for extensive testing and development of complex networked server. Through its robust and powerful engine, it makes it easier for developers to introduce virtual infrastructure to a computer and increase productivity. Everything said you will agree that the utility is a fast and practical tool to use if you need a virtualization utility which will greatly decrease workloads.
- Makes it possible fro multiple OS to run in one computer
- Makes it possible for you to create many virtual machines
- Software requires a lot of computer resources
Popular Workstation Made Better Than Ever with the Release of Updated Version
By Pablo Conde Ferrer

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.
- User interface is more stable
- Changes in Tools menu does not cause black screen anymore
- Computers with high specifications is required
