We are incredibly excited about the release of VMware Workstation 8. In what some team members have called the biggest improvements in a decade, VMware Workstation 8 is your on-ramp to the cloud. From your PC to the datacenter As you and your organization start your journey to the cloud, Workstation 8 can help. Then when you are ready to move your virtual machines to the internal cloud, you simply drag and drop to upload them to vSphere.
Start sharing the benefits Up until now Workstation has been limited to virtual machines running locally on your PC. Workstation 8 can run as a server to share virtual machines or host applications for your team, department or anyone else in your organization with enterprise-caliber control over user access. Say goodbye to the time consuming process of copying virtual machines to file servers or USB hard drives to share them.
Gain anytime, anywhere access With Workstation 8 we have embraced the cloud. Workstation 8 can remotely connect to virtual machines running on vSphere, vCenter, and even another copy of Workstation on your network. Now you can leverage your PC and the internal cloud to access all of the virtual machines you need, regardless of where they are running. New UI, new way to work To harness all this power and connectivity, the Workstation 8 user interface has been completely revamped and streamlined with simplified menus, folder views, a live thumbnail bar and a new virtual machine library.
The new virtual machine library makes it easy to view your local and remote virtual machines. Use search to quickly find the virtual machines that you need, whether they are running on your local PC, vSphere, or another instance of Workstation 8 on the network.
Run the most demanding applications Workstation 8 continues to raise the bar in what you can do with a virtual machine. Workstation 8 is so powerful you can even run bit virtual machines on vSphere which itself is running in a Workstation 8 virtual machine. This is not for the faint of heart!
