About VmWare Workstation

(plagerized from Wikipedia) VMware Workstation is a hosted hypervisor that runs on x64 versions of Windows and Linux operating systems; it enables users to set up virtual machines (VMs) on a single physical machine, and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine. Each virtual machine can execute its own operating system, including versions of Microsoft Windows, Linux, BSD, and MS-DOS. VMware Workstation is developed and sold by VMware, Inc., a division of Dell Technologies. There is a free-of-charge version, VMware Workstation Player, for non-commercial use. An operating system license is needed to use proprietary VMs such as Windows. Ready-made, free Linux VMs configured for different purposes are available from many sources.

SecureOffice supports the (licensed, $) Vmware Workstation application. Commercial uses must purchase an additional license from Vmware, Inc.

SecureOffice uses Vmware Workstation to host automatically updating web and email servers such as Sme-Server or any other virtual machine. Automatic updates for web and email servers is crucial to deal with ever changing virus and security threats without requiring costly manual maintenance.

Other applications for Vmware Workstation / SecureOffice are:

  • Consolidating separate physical servers (PC's) to run as virtual machines under SecureOffice.
  • Running legacy servers (Windows 98, XP, etc.) no longer supported by modern hardware, therby saving your legacy IP investments.

A one month free trial of VmWare Workstation allows you to try before buy. By following the SecureOffice and VmWare Workstation installation pre-requisites on this site VmWare Workstation can be up and running quickly, hosting your services once SecureOffice has been configured with a domain name.
