VMware today released the seventh version of the merger, its virtualization software for Mac, with a new feature that allows virtual machines that are running the user access to remote data centers.
The function is available in VMware Fusion 7 Pro, which takes place at developers and other professionals who have to do more than just run operating systems other than Mac OS X.
Fusion Pro 7 is scheduled to be available for download starting today for $ 150 vmware.com A basic version of the Fusion 7 Advanced Features missing, but allows users to run other operating systems on OS X Windows and costs $ 70. When Fusion 6 was released to the United Nations year ago, the prices were $ 60 and $ 130, respectively.
If you own FUSION 5 or 6, the United Nations will be updated July 1 Cost $ 50 for basic and $ 80 for the Pro edition. Also, anyone BUY Fusion 6 August or January then you can upgrade to version 7 a pity Additional load.
Although much more expensive than the basic version, the fusion Taken Pro has more resemblance to the workstation, desktop virtualization software VMware to premium Windows and Linux. Linked clones, workstation performance in which multiple copies of a Virtual Machine know how to create sin replay the whole thing, Pro street in the merger last year. The new virtual machines remotely access also is taken from the workstation.
"In Fusion 6 and earlier versions, you can run virtually any operating system in a Virtual Machine Virtual Machine but it had to be running on your Mac," said product manager Simon Bennett VMware Ars. "With Fusion 7, you can connect an A Virtual Machine running elsewhere. Mare Being on your Workstation computer desktop, which may be running in your data center [server virtualization software] vSphere or even use our ESXi server product free and you can use it as if it were running locally., which is really good if you care about battery life, because everything functioning hypervisor United Nations Environmental, EL operating system and applications, they will not pay the price on your battery life and you can also use virtual machines larger than you would on a laptop Mac way. "
This is useful for developers who need to log on many virtual machines, or software demonstrations, he said. The function is usually used as a red mare locally or over the Internet with a VPN, Bennett said. In addition to accessing UN sin necesidad store virtual machines on a Mac, the system will allow users to upload or download to and from virtual machines vSphere and Workstation.
Dual GPU optimization is another new feature available for Fusion 7 Pro, but not the fusion of the base. "For the MacBook Pro with a discrete GPU and the integrated GPU A, Fusion 7 Pro allows users to choose which GPU to use 3D applications," VMware said in a press release. "Selecting the integrated GPU will result in longer battery life, while selecting the GPU will offer the best performance for 3D applications Virtual Machine."
New Features for the professional and non-professional versions include design changes to match OS X Yosemite, optimization of Latter-Mac hardware, greater energy efficiency and better support for Retina Display in Unity mode. As Parallels Coherence mode, the unit separates applications VMware Windows of the car window to make them look as if this is Virtual Mac applications.
Fusion 7 virtual machines can still be huge, but did not get any more, still limited to 16 virtual CPUs, virtual Clubs 8 GB, and 64 GB of memory. But UN Hay new twist: "The UN Di graphics-intensive applications can give further impetus by assigning up to 2GB of video memory to the Virtual Machine" VMware said. Previously, the season limit of 128 MB.
VMware said second optimizations for Intel processors produce up to 43 percent better performance "on CPU-intensive operations, such as multimedia, encryption, and decryption." UN Fusion 7 will use 42 percent less energy than fusion 6, VMware supports.
VMware Parallels rival Lanzo version 10 of its virtualization product for Mac last month. Parallels cobra 80 dollars for the basic version and about $ 100 ENTRY before saving volume for the Enterprise editions.
