Sometime around two years ago, the public was eagerly awaiting the beta version of the product called Vmware Fusion. It caused quite a stir that many not-so-knowledgeable ones were wondering why it has been eagerly anticipated by those whose passion buttons were constantly pressed by technologically adept individuals. To start off, Fusion is the virtualization client of Vmware for OS X. A lot of the techies out there are often familiar with Parallels, which is a solution for Mac computers that will give you the freedom to run Windows operating system as well as other types of operating systems on their Mac platform. This product called Fusion, however, is VMware’s very own answer (or some might even think of it as a challenge) to Parallels specifically.
And since Vmware was and is still currently considered as the one true market leader when it comes to virtualization space, having a Vmware application for a Mac OS X platform is truly a great big deal. VMware’s Fusion beta system is capable enough to work with Macs that run on Intel processors, thereby allowing you to be able to virtualize a good number of different types of operating systems other than Macintosh – such as Linux’s Ubunutu. You can even assign multiple processors which you can use on your virtual machines, and this can even be further enhanced thanks to a support of USB 2.0 which comes out of the box. But perhaps what is considered to be one of the largest selling points of such a product like Fusion is its ability to work with a wide variety of Virtual Appliances as well.
