Desktop Virtualization: VMware Workstation 6.5
VMware Workstation 6.5 Gives Technical Professionals Rich Multimedia Supoort, Improved Security and New Debugging Tools

VMware announced the general availability of VMware Workstation 6.5. VMware Workstation, the desktop virtualization product, has new features, including the ability to seamlessly toggle between windows on different virtual machines, support for Direct X 3D graphics and new debugging tools with Virtual Machine (VM) Record Replay.

Introduced more than nine years ago, VMware Workstation accelerates software development and testing, provides rapid provisioning and resetting of multi-tier environments, enables pre-production testing of new desktop and server applications in secure, easy to manage virtual machines and allows users to run any application on their preferred operating system.

“VMware Workstation 6.5 lets users do things they would never be able to do without it, like debugging complex multi-tier applications while running productivity applications all on a single computer,” said Jeff Jennings, vice president of desktop products and solutions, at VMware. “With the enhancements in VMware Workstation 6.5, we continue to raise the bar for desktop virtualization by giving technical professionals a simpler, richer and more secure user experience that’s also mobile with new Pocket ACE support. Workstation is a must-have product and the only choice for serious technical desktop virtualization users.”

With an advanced and proven feature set as well as broadest support for x86 operating systems including Windows, Linux, NetWare, Solaris x86 and FreeBSD, VMware Workstation continues to be the “gold standard” virtualization product for technical professionals.

New features in VMware Workstation 6.5 include:

  • Seamless desktop experience with “Unity”
  • Support for DirectX 3D graphics
  • Simplify creating Windows and Linux virtual machines with Easy Install
  • VM record and replay for groundbreaking debugging
  • Create ACE encrypted virtual machines
