Many Macintosh users know the company, VMware, because of its product Fusion, a “virtualization” program that enables Intel-based Macs (the only ones made anymore) to run Windows. But VMware has a range of virtualization programs, including VMware Player, a free application for running multiple operating systems – including Windows 7 and Google’s new Chrome OS – on Windows and Linux computers. VMware brings total OS flexibility to the desktop on iMac rentals and other Apple models, while also supplying virtual machine technology to servers with VMware Server.
VMWare Forum 2011
VMware is taking its show on the road between May and July, hitting eight cities (including Anaheim on May 19; city schedule here) and doing one online presentation. The firm’s VMware Forum 2011 is a free, day-long event where you will learn how “accelerated” IT lets you respond quickly to market conditions, competitor moves and customer needs. You will find that virtualization of the desktop, amazing as it is, is just the beginning. VMware vSphere – “the most widely deployed foundation for cloud computing” – can help you reduce capital and operating expenses, tighten up security and even “go green” (CRE supports that strongly).
VMware claims its products can meet your company’s precise business needs, even as you lower costs, with custom-tailored IT service based in “the cloud.” Whether or not it works for your unique situation is something you must look into. With a full range of computer rentals capable of running any OS you need, CRE is ready to support VMware’s goal of a “cohesive, secure and compliant cloud strategy in three core areas: infrastructure, applications and end-user computing.” We can install VMware Fusion on Mac Pro rentals (even Mac laptops) to introduce you to desktop virtualization, but to get the corporate-wide “view from the cloud” you should attend this free event.
No crowd in the cloud
At Forum 2011, you will discover a proven method for providing safe, secure access to applications and data – to and from any device, wherever and whenever users need them. You will see how the power and potential of VMware vSphere can help your company make a swift, secure transition to the cloud.
