VMware announces its Fusion and Workstation desktop hypervisor solutions
Vmware has unveiled the newest versions of its VMware Fusion and VMware Workstation desktop hypervisor solutions. VMware’s updates support the changing needs of modern developers by extending the tools traditionally used to simplify workflows and expand capabilities of virtual machines (VMs) to container-based applications orchestrated with Kubernetes. The latest release of Fusion also introduces a new edition Fusion Player available with a free Personal Use license as well as offering a paid license for commercial use.
Lee Caswell, vice president, marketing, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware, says, “Developers can now slipstream Kubernetes applications from test/dev into production. We’ve built a consistent CI/CD operational model that with our free Player version is available for all developers.”
Expanding Support for Developers
In preparation for the next major version of macOS 11.0 Big Sur, VMware has made full use of Apple’s hypervisor and other APIs, removing the need for kernel extensions and supporting macOS 11 as both host and guest.
Additional New VMware Fusion and Workstation Features
● Dark Mode – For Workstation Pro and Player UIs, a new Dark Mode feature will seamlessly align with the latest versions of Windows 10, including the recently released 2004 build.
● eGPU Compatibility – Fusion Player and Pro will support eGPU devices, helping offload the resource-taxing graphics rendering process from the internal integrated or discrete GPU, to a much more powerful external one.
● Improved Accessibility – Accessibility controls in compliance with VPAT Section 508, helping users get the full benefits of virtual machines.
Pricing and Availability
VMware is introducing Fusion 12 Player which will follow the same pricing and licensing model as Workstation Player meaning it is available free for Personal Use and requires a license for Commercial Use. VMware Fusion 12 Player and Workstation 16 Player New Licenses will be available for $149, and Upgrade Licenses will be available for $79.
VMware Fusion 12 Pro and VMware Workstation 16 Pro are expected to become available in VMware’s Q3 FY21 (ending Oct. 30, 2020). Upgrades for each will be available for $99 and new licensing is available for $199.
