VMware Workstation Pro 15.0 | Player 15.0


VMware Workstation Pro 15.0

VMware Workstation est un logiciel de virtualisation de système d'exploitation crée en 1999 par la société VMware et est le logiciel le plus connu avant d'avoir été rejoint par Parallels Desktop, Virtualbox et d'autres logiciel gratuit et open-source comme QEMU ou KVM sur Linux.

VMware Workstation possède d'innombrables options et est capable de faire tourner des machines virtuelles en utilisant plusieurs cœurs du système hôte sans avoir à recourir aux fonctions de virtualisation matérielles quémandées par ses concurrents.

Depuis la version 11.0, VMware Workstation n'est disponible que pour les machines 64 bits à partir de Windows 7 et pour Linux en version d'évaluation. Les utilisateurs de MacOS X ont droit à un autre logiciel appelé VMware Fusion.
