Run Virtual Operating Systems on One PC
Simple, Powerful Local Virtualization
With more than 20 years of development and sharing the same hypervisor platform as vSphere, Workstation Player is one of the most mature and stable solutions for local desktop virtualization.
Your Path to ‘Work from Anywhere’
Isolate corporate desktops to user-owned devices by running secure virtual containers on nearly any Windows or Linux PC, with management capabilities compatible with services like Workspace ONE.
The Perfect Tool for Learning
Running virtual operating systems on a desktop PC allows students to explore software delivery, operating systems and application development in safe, accurately simulated, local sandboxes.
Safe Web Browsing in a Secure Sandbox
Run a second desktop in a secure and isolated environment with different privacy settings, tools and networking configurations to keep your host system safe while browsing online.
