VMware Workstation Pro is the industry standard for running multiple operating systems as virtual machines (VMs) on a single Linux or Windows PC. IT professionals, developers and businesses who build, test or demo software for any device, platform or cloud rely on Workstation Pro.

Workstation Pro Delivers a Data Center in Your Laptop

Run Multiple OSs on a Single PC

VMware Workstation Pro allows you to run multiple operating systems at once on the same Windows or Linux PC. Create real Linux and Windows VMs and other desktop, server, and tablet environments, complete with configurable virtual networking and network condition simulation, for use in code development, solution architecting, application testing, product demonstrations and more.

Connect to VMware vSphere
Securely connect with vSphere, ESXi or other Workstation servers to launch, control and manage both virtual machines (VMs) and physical hosts. A common VMware hypervisor maximizes productivity and enables easy transfer of VMs to and from your local PC.

Develop and Test for Any Platform
Workstation Pro supports hundreds of operating systems and works with cloud and container technologies like Docker and Kubernetes.

Secure and Isolate Environments
Run a secure second desktop with different privacy settings, tools and networking configurations, or use forensic tools to investigate OS vulnerabilities. Workstation provides one of the most secure hypervisors in the industry and delivers powerful features for IT security professionals.

Features

vSphere Integration

Workstation serves as the ultimate companion to vSphere. A shared hypervisor delivers environment fidelity like no other, ensuring that apps can easily move between desktop, data center and cloud. Workstation brings insight into remote clusters, data centers and virtual machines, as well as allow users to quickly deploy ESXi and the vCenter Server Appliance as VMs in a local lab on a single PC.

REST API for VM Automation
Use locally as a workflow enhancement, or remotely to command an offsite private server, the REST API leverages the same API framework introduced in VMware Fusion. Provides over 20 controls for operations such as Host and Guest Virtual Networking, VM Power, and shared folder management for programmatic mounting of source code directories from the host.

High-Performance 3D Graphics
VMware Workstation Pro supports DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.3, to deliver a fluid and responsive experience when running 3D applications. You can run the most highly demanding 3D apps like AutoCAD or SOLIDWORKS with near-native performance in a Windows VM.

Powerful Virtual Networking
Create complex IPv4 or IPv6 virtual networks for VMs with added support for Jumbo Frames, or integrate with third-party software to design full data center topologies using real-world routing software and tools. Test app resiliency Virtual Network Simulation by introducing packet loss, latency and bandwidth restrictions.

Clones for Rapid Duplication
Save time and effort and ensure an exact duplicate when repeatedly creating the same VM setup. Use “Linked Clones” to quickly duplicate a VM while significantly reducing physical disk space. Use “Full Clones” to create fully isolated duplicates that can be shared with others.

Helpful Snapshots
Create a rollback point to revert to on the fly, which is perfect for testing unknown software or creating customer demos. Multiple snapshots make it easy to test a variety of different scenarios without the need to install multiple operating systems.

Monster Virtual Machines
Create massive VMs with up to 16 vCPUs, 8 TB virtual disks, and 64 GB of memory to run the most demanding desktop and server applications in a virtualized environment. Give graphics-intensive apps an additional boost by allocating up to 3GB of available host video memory to a VM.

Cross Compatibility
Create Linux or Windows VMs that can run across the VMware product portfolio or create restricted VMs for “offline” VM security. Workstation also supports open VM standards so you can create and play VMs from other vendors.

High Resolution Display Support
Workstation Pro has been newly optimized to support high-resolution 4K UHD (3840x2160) displays for desktops and QHD+ (3200x1800) displays used in laptops and x86 tablets. It also supports multiple monitors with different DPI settings, such as a new 4K UHD display along with an existing 1080p HD display.

Shared Virtual Machines
Quickly share and test applications in a simulated production environment. Run VMware Workstation Pro as a server to share a repository of pre-loaded Linux and Windows VMs in every desired configuration with your teammates, department or organization.

Restricted Access to Virtual Machines
Protect corporate content by restricting access to Workstation VM settings like drag-and-drop, copy-and-paste and connections to USB devices. Virtual machines can be encrypted and password-protected to ensure only authorized users have access.

Resolved Issues

Sound quality is degraded

The quality of sound playback and recording through the emulated ES1371 sound device is degraded when compared to Workstation 15.5.2 and earlier versions. This issue is now resolved.

The Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock keys and indicators don't operate as expected
The Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock keys and indicators behave erratically in a Linux virtual machine running on Workstation 15.5.5. This issue is now resolved.
