VMware is expanding its desktop based virtualization solutions today with new releases of Workstation and Fusion.
VMware Workstation 8 enables desktop users to build, test and run virtual machines on their systems. The new release also now makes it easier for users to migrate to the cloud and VMware’s vSphere solution.
“You can build and test and then drag and drop for vSphere 5,” Pat Lee, director, client product management for VMware told InternetNews.com.
Lee added that Workstation 8 enables users to ramp up their cloud efforts as well by being able to remotely connect to cloud instances of applications. Going a step further, Workstation 8 can be run on a server enabling a small private cloud setup for sharing of virtual machines.
