Build and Test for Any Platform with VMware Workstation Pro

Build Virtual Machines on the Desktop

Build, test, and demo software across an array of different devices, platforms, and clouds. IT professionals, developers, and businesses rely on Workstation Pro every day to support their projects and customers. Workstation Pro makes it easy to run complex local virtual environments to simulate operating systems, platforms, and clouds, all from the same desktop PC.

Run VMs and Containers on a Single PC

Deploy local OCI containers and Kubernetes clusters with VM isolation, virtual networking and virtual resource options through the vctl CLI tool.

Develop and Test for Any Platform

Fix more bugs and ship quality code on time using Workstation Pro in development and testing. Virtualize nearly any x86 operating system available today on a desktop PC.

Enjoy Baked-In vSphere and ESXi Support

Run ESXi and vCenter as virtual machines on the desktop, and connect to a remote vSphere environment for quick VM access and basic management tasks.

Run Secure and Isolated Desktops

Run a secure second desktop with different privacy settings, tools and networking configurations for online protection, or to take “snapshots” that can be restored later.

Workstation Pro Features

Virtual Machines

Rely on the same hypervisor technology that powers vSphere to run virtual machines and guest operating systems.

High-Performance 3D Graphics

Gain a fluid and responsive experience for running 3D applications. Workstation Pro supports DirectX 11 and now OpenGL 4.3 in virtual machines.

Containers and Kubernetes Clusters

Developers on Windows have a new CLI tool, vctl, that can build and run containers and Kubernetes clusters with VM-level isolation and networking.

Powerful Virtual Networking

Create and configure complex IPv4 and IPv6 virtual networks for VMs, with added network latency and bandwidth simulations to help recreate real-world scenarios.
