Sep 10, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
VMware, Inc., a provider of virtualization-based cloud infrastructure solutions, has unveiled VMware Workstation 10, a new version of its virtualization software.
The solution showcases robust new features with unmatched operating system support, a rich user experience, a comprehensive feature set and high performance. VMware Workstation 10 is designed for professionals that rely on virtual machines to get their job done, the company said.
"The launch of VMware Workstation 10 is a significant milestone in our legacy of running virtual machines on a personal computer," said Jason Joel, director, personal products, VMware. "Powered by VMware's most advanced virtualization platform, VMware Workstation 10 takes virtualization to the next level, and continues VMware's tradition of delivering innovative features that technical professionals rely on every day."
Key new features in VMware Workstation 10 include: the latest operating systems; state of the art performance; expiring virtual machines; tablet sensors; and run a cloud on PC.
Easy Install now recognizes Windows 8.1 and new Linux distributions to make it easier than ever to create the latest virtual machines. Computers running Windows 8.1 can be converted into virtual machines via an easy-to-use wizard.
VMware Workstation 10 enables virtual machines to be created with up to 16 vCPUs, 64GB of memory, 8 TB disks and adds faster USB connections, a new vSATA controller and twice as many virtual networks. Restricted virtual machines can be set to expire at a specified date and time. An expired virtual machine automatically suspends and will not restart without administrator intervention, the company added.
Additionally, VMware Workstation 10 includes the industry's first virtual accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and ambient light sensor to enable applications running in a virtual machine to respond when a user interacts with their tablet. VMware Workstation 10 lets users build a cloud on their PCs running popular applications from Pivotal, Puppet Labs and Vagrant, the company reported.
