More secure and productive
Unprecedented simplicity, flexibility, speed and scale.
Gone are the days of client/server computing where end users were tasked to do their work from one device and one location. Today, end users are leveraging new types of devices for work, accessing Windows applications alongside non-Windows-based applications and are more mobile than ever. But managing and delivering services to end users with traditional PC-centric tools has become time consuming and costly.
Desktop virtualization solutions provide IT with a new streamlined approach to deliver, protect, and manage Windows or Linux desktops and applications on premises or in the cloud, while containing costs and ensuring end users can work anytime, anywhere across any device. Desktop virtualization also allows one centralized server to deliver and manage individualized desktops.
Run Windows on Mac (without rebooting)
Now you can continue running your favorite Windows applications on the laptop you love, side by side with your Mac applications, sharing files and system resources quickly and reliably.
Run Linux on Windows or Mac (without rebooting)
VMware gives you side-by-side access to Linux (and 200 other supported operating systems) applications from either your Mac or your Windows PC or tablet. Alternatively, you can run Windows and other operating systems on your Linux machine.
Extend the Life of Legacy Applications
Deploy mission-critical, legacy applications on modern hardware while taking advantage of compliance and security technologies available for the latest host operating systems.
Reduce Laptop Management Costs
Reduce CapEx and OpEx associated with remote laptops with centrally controlled, cloud-deployed, local virtual desktops. Easily reclaim software licenses when decommissioning BYOPC workers.
Eliminate Laptop Provisioning Costs
Remotely enable and refresh virtual desktops with no downtime for branch offices and mobile workers.
Access Desktops from Anywhere, Even Offline
For road warriors and offshore development, VMs are a better way of securely delivering a local desktop that doesn’t rely on a fast network connection.
Enforce Desktop Isolation
Force separation of personal and work-related files by isolating the virtual hard disk from the physical, controlling copy-and-paste and restricting drag-and-drop.
Restrict External Device Access
Enforce policies on the use of USB memory cards, flash drives, video cameras and any other third-party devices plugged into a laptop.
Embrace the BYOPC Culture
Rapidly deliver standardized corporate desktops to user-owned Macs and PCs, policy-secured and Active Directory authorized.
Focus on the Application that Matters
Seamlessly access apps from multiple operating systems on separate monitors (even Retina), desktops or side by side.
Enforce Time-Based Restrictions
Create time-bound, encrypted, local virtual desktops that auto-expire and can even remove themselves from remote machines.
