Usage of VMware Workstation 8


Hello Davionevan,

VMware Workstation is an award winning tool from VMware,

VMware Workstation enables one physical machine to run more than one operating systems at the same time.

Users can set up multiple virtual machines (VMs) and use them at the same time along with the actual physical machine.

This concept of Virtualization is very popular and often used for various reasons, for example in software development, a VM might be created to test a particular piece of software, the VM may be discarded once testing is complete.

VMWare Workstation can be downloaded.

I would suggest looking at this informative video "VMware Workstation 8 download and install | tutorial video by TechyV"

Hope this information has been helpful to you. In case you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Usage of VMware Workstation 8


VMware Workstation 8, the one you are asking is already an outdated version. The latest release as of the moment is VMware Workstation 10.0.0. It is a desktop virtualization solution that gives system administrators, power users especially developers the needed means of running and testing multiple operating systems on the same workstation or computer.

It also allows you to run various virtual machines on your computer or on a single PC thus permitting broad testing and development of intricate networked server-class programs. With its tough and powerful engine, it would be easier for developers to initiate virtual infrastructure to a company and therefore intensify its productivity.

It’s not a free application though and is quite expensive if you are thinking of having it for your own personal use. The full registered version costs 225 Euros but you can still try it for 30 days with its free 30-day trial period. To download, visit Download VMware Workstation Trial.

This version works on Windows Server 2012, Windows 2000, Windows XP 32-bit, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 including 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Linux. For more information watch “VMware Workstation 8 download and install | tutorial video by TechyV”.
