Product Reviews
VMware Workstation ( v. 7 ) - license is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have found this product excellent for test/dev environments. This is 90% of what I use this product for. Valuable Features:I have found this product excellent for test/dev environments. This is 90% of what I use this product for.Improvements to My Organization:Since I work with so many different customers, I deal with many operating systems and workstation configurations. When performing upgrades to servers, applications, windows, etc., I need to know the ramifications before we go live with production.Creating labs has been useful for my employees when working on certifications.I am also not a big fan of adding and removing software over and over on my laptop, so I use my VM's when I need a temporary application installed. It also keeps the clutter down, keeping my main tools fast and efficient.They also come in handy when cleaning infected thumb drives.Room for Improvement:I have had issues with the virtual network adapters in the past that has taken some time to troubleshoot.Use of Solution:I have been using this solution since version 6.Deployment Issues:Deployment is very straight forward.Stability Issues:I have encountered stability issues with the virtual networks and have had run into issue with copying or moving VMs. Usually these all work great 9 out of 10 times, but when it doesn't work right it become very time consuming to fix and troubleshoot.Scalability Issues:None thus far.Customer Service:8 out of 10. Good SR system to communicate through emails and phone support.Previous Solutions:NoInitial Setup:Setup is very easy.ROI:Using workstation saves money on big hardware using vSphere just for test/dev.Cost and Licensing Advice:The pricing is a bit steep in my opinion for testing and there are other options. None however that are so powerful and easy to use.Other Solutions Considered:NoDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use it to run multiple instances of systems on my host machine to get better usability. Valuable Features:VM management - ability to very easily create and manage multiple VMs of various platforms. Portability and ease of saving and copying entire VMs from machine to machine.Improvements to My Organization:As a systems admin, I use it to run multiple instances of systems on my host machine to get better usability and for testing new builds for our users as well as for server updates.Room for Improvement:It's been a struggle at times to keep drive shares and video drivers working across updates. So a bit of stability in those areas would be nice.Use of Solution:2 yearsStability Issues:I've been hit with a few bugs and documented issues.Specifically with video not behaving for VM windows on multiple monitors. And shared printing from the host machine is very temperamental.Cost and Licensing Advice:It always seems a bit steep to me on renewals, but it pairs very well with our existing vSphere architecture so it offers a few more benefits and ease of use.Other Solutions Considered:I use Hyper-V for the same purposes but VMware Workstation performs well and scales down to our developers needs easily.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It allows the recreation of an entire network including multiple subnets, but the addition of a built-in virtual router would be good. Valuable Features:Network virtualisation allows the recreation of an entire network including multiple subnets, this is required to correctly recreate live deployment scenarios. It can interact with vSphere/Esxi to allow VMs to be moved directly into vSphere, or copied out and stood-up in Workstation; full support to import/export from OVF templates is also supported. This functionality has proved extremely beneficial in pre-staging supporting servers for DR recovery tests as well as testing system upgrades.Improvements to My Organization:It has given us the flexibility to recreate live server scenarios including the supporting networks and AD domain controllers; these are then used to test upgrades or migrations with no impact on the live servers or network. These actions can then be repeated on the live servers, or the upgraded test VM can simply replace the original server (depending on the service requirements and server role). This can be completed by transferring the test VM directly from Workstation to the ESXI host or vSphere environment. If the transfer is the preferred method, the original VM remains available as a failback.Room for Improvement:The addition of a built-in virtual router would be a good addition. Currently, I run my own virtual router in order to provide conectivity between virtual subnets.Use of Solution:I've been using it for several years; VMware Workstation since v6 (released in 2008). Initially, it was just for building test servers for training purposes, and versions 7, 8 and now 9 for creating test implementations of live server deployment scenarios, to assist in resolving live issues or to test change controls.Deployment Issues:There were no issues.Stability Issues:In v6, it was a 32bit environment with a maximum memory of 4Gb RAM. Therefore, this required a high level of swap out of RAM to disk in order to provide sufficient memory space to run VMs, this occasionally caused system crashes. Since v8 this has not been an issue.Scalability Issues:None, Workstation scales to 32Gb of RAM.Customer Service:No VMware support is provided with Workstation.Technical Support:No VMware technical support is available with VMware Workstation.Initial Setup:The initial set-up is straight forward, however, you need to ensure that virtualisation is switched on in the BIOS.ROI:Workstation is a one off licence payment.Other Advice:Make sure you have at least four cores available on an Intel i5 (i7 with eight cores recommended) a minimum of 8Gb RAM (32Gb recommended) and lots of internal storage (SSD preferable). Having a virtual SCSI SAN is also recommended if you wish to evaluate vSphere or Hyper-V deployments including shared storage for VM failover.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
