VMware Workstation Pro 15.5.0 Build 14665864 with size 557 Mb is offering advanced capabilities for professionals who work with virtual machines. VMware Workstation Pro is designed to develop, test, demonstrate and deploy software by simultaneously running multiple x86-based operating systems on one PC. With support for the latest versions of Windows and Linux, the latest processors and hardware, and the ability to connect to VMware vCloud Air and VMware vSphere, VMware Workstation Pro is the ideal solution for increasing work efficiency, saving time and mastering the cloud.
- Support for Windows 10 and other systems
Workstation Pro is ideal for development and testing in a Windows 10 or Linux environment. Workstation Pro allows you to take advantage of new features in Windows 10 (Cortana Voice Assistant, new Edge browser, etc.). For organizations and users who work with the latest Linux distributions, Workstation Pro supports Ubuntu 15.04, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, Fedora 22 and others. You can create nested hypervisors to work with Hyper-V or VMware ESXI and vSphere to create a universal platform for training, demonstration, and testing. Workstation Pro also adds support for VMware Photon.
- Strong 3D graphics
Workstation Pro supports DirectX 10 and OpenGL 3.3, which provides flexibility when launching 3D applications and allows you to achieve better data visualization. It also provides enhanced startup capabilities for AutoCAD or SOLIDWORKS applications.
- Support for high resolution screens
Workstation Pro has been optimized for 4K UHD (3840 x 2160), QHD (3200×1800) displays, and x86 tablets.
- New opportunities to create virtual machines
Create powerful virtual machines, including up to 16 virtual CPUs, 8 TB virtual disks, and up to 64 GB of memory to run the heaviest applications.
- Support for modern hardware solutions
The solution allows you to work on tablets with Intel machines via virtual sensors. You can also use the latest Microsoft Surface tablet with a virtual accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and light sensor, which will allow applications running on virtual machines to respond when users move, rotate, and take other actions on the tablet. 64-bit Intel x86 processors are supported, including the Broadwell and Haswell micro architectures.
- Sophisticated connectivity
Workstation Pro utilizes the latest hardware with support for HD audio with 7.1-channel surround sound, USB 3.0 devices and Bluetooth technology to connect a webcam, headset or printer to a virtual machine. Additionally, Workstation Pro improves Skype or Lync performance in the guest virtual machine.
- Creating a virtual network
Enhanced IPv6 support, including IPv6-in-IPv4 network addresses, allows you to create more complex network topologies than before. Using Workstation Pro makes it possible to add and remove IPv4 or IPv6 virtual networks, as well as create special virtual network configurations that are ideal for testing and demonstrating infrastructure.
- Benefits of cloud technology
The ability to connect to the VMware vCloud Air version, as well as increased integration with the Sphere and ESXi servers, which makes it easy to expand and scale virtual machines in the cloud.
- user interface
The Workstation interface includes simplified menus, dynamic icons, tabs, parameter screens, and a searchable virtual machine library.
- Protect your work environment and save time
Workstation Solutions provide security and protection for virtual machines, while saving time when working with them through the use of snapshots and clone capabilities. Using snapshots, users can save the state of the virtual machine and, if necessary, return to it. On Workstations, you can easily add virtual machines by cloning, that is, make an unlimited number of copies of virtual machines as part of the basic installation and configuration process. The clone mechanism linked is a faster, easier and more efficient way to duplicate complex VM parameters for special tests and demonstrations. Using the associated clone mechanism, a copy of the virtual machine is created which uses virtual disks from the parent virtual machine, but it consumes far less disk space than full clones.
- Limited Time Virtual Machines
To implement short-term projects, adapt temporary employees, or just to evaluate software, Workstation solutions provide the ability to create virtual machines with restricted access that will stop working at certain points of time. The virtual machine that is turned on sends requests to the server at specified intervals, saving the current system time in the VM access policy file limited access as the last reliable timestamp. At the end of the validity of the virtual machine, the operation is suspended automatically and only the IT administrator can restart it.
- Cross-Virtual Machine Compatibility
Workstations provide compatibility with many other VMware products and across platforms. With Workstation, you can create virtual machines that can work with many other VMware products, as well as virtual machines with limited access for use with VMware Fusion Pro and VMware Player Pro.
