VMware Fusion Pro and VMware Fusion let anyone run Windows and hundreds of other operating systems on a Mac, without rebooting. Simple enough for new users, and powerful enough for IT professionals, developers, and businesses, Fusion provides agility, productivity and security every day.
With over 15 years of virtualization leadership, millions of satisfied customers, and more than 50 awards, VMware provides the most stable and secure desktop virtualization platform in the industry.
Running Windows on the Mac is the tip of the iceberg. You now have the power to stay on the cutting edge of technology. VMware Fusion lets you choose among hundreds of operating systems, from lesser-known Linux distributions to the latest Windows 10 release.
Fusion securely connects with vSphere, ESXi and Fusion servers to launch, control and manage both virtual machines and physical hosts. Thanks to a common VMware platform, it’s trivial to transfer virtual machines to and from your Mac, giving you maximum agility and productivity.
Fusion blends your Windows experience seamlessly with the Mac you love. You have the flexibility to keep the two worlds securely apart, or integrate them as one seamless experience. Install a fresh OS like Windows 10 or easily convert an older PC into a virtual one.
DevOps and developers use Fusion every day to build the next big thing. Fusion makes it simple to test almost any OS and application on a Mac. Build a new app, build the supporting cloud servers, and test the end-to-end process right on your laptop.
Isolate corporate desktops from BYO devices by disabling copy-and-paste, drag-and-drop, shared folders and access to USB devices. Run restricted virtual machines that are encrypted and password-protected, ensuring that only authorized users can interact with corporate data.
For games and highly demanding 3D applications like AutoCAD or SOLIDWORKS, you can dedicate a massive 2GB of video memory, giving an immersive DirectX 10 and OpenGL 3.3 experience like no other.
Launch virtual machines on Macs with macOS 10.12 Sierra, or safely test the new macOS in a sandbox on your current Mac without disruption.
Stay on the cutting edge with full support for running Windows 10 as a virtual machine on your Mac.
Enjoy seamless copy-and-paste between Windows and Mac, drag-and-drop file sharing, folder sharing and mirroring, and networking and printing that require no setup.
Isolate the Mac from Windows by disabling integration features to secure and protect the operating systems from each other. VMware Fusion gives you choices that aren’t possible when carrying a second computer.
No more choosing between Windows or Mac at startup. Fusion lets you run Windows and Mac apps side-by-side directly from your existing Boot Camp partition without re-installing or rebooting.
Save time and effort when creating the same VM repeatedly. Use “Linked Clones” to quickly duplicate a VM while significantly reducing physical disk space. You can also use “Full Clones” to create fully isolated duplicates that you can share with others.
Unity mode hides the Windows desktop so you can run Windows apps just like Mac apps. You can launch Windows apps directly from Dock, Spotlight or Launchpad and view them in Exposé, Spaces and Mission Control as if they were Mac apps. Easily interact with Windows apps using Mac shortcuts and intuitive gestures.
Use Snapshots to create a ‘rollback point’ to revert to on the fly, which is perfect for testing unknown software or creating customer demos. Snapshots make it easy to test a variety of different scenarios without needing to install multiple operating systems.
Create complex IPv4 or IPv6 virtual networks for virtual machines, or integrate with third-party software to design full data center topologies using real-world routing software and tools.
Use Fusion to connect to vSphere, ESXi or Fusion servers. Drive remote VMs, command power operations or transfer virtual machines to and from vSphere environments. With a common underlying hypervisor, it’s easy to run VMs from the corporate data center, right from the comfort of your Mac.
Run Windows from a Boot Camp partition, install from a Windows disc, migrate to an existing PC or even install macOS Sierra from a download or recovery partition. Fusion provides a simple yet powerful way to install multiple operating systems on your Mac.
Fusion looks beautiful on the latest 5K iMac displays and supports mixed retina and non-retina setups. Use a standard DPI display with your retina MacBook Pro or add a 4K display to your setup without hassle. No matter what sort of display you’re using, Fusion makes Windows look better than ever.
Fusion delivers a desktop virtualization solution designed for every kind of Mac user.
IT Pros get a high-powered productivity tool. Developers get an expansive engineering environment. Business leaders can enable their BYO initiatives. Students and home users get the best of all worlds.
With Fusion, you can run virtual machines that are compatible with your corporate data center right from your laptop. Quickly perform management tasks on vSphere and integrate with industry-leading network tools to design and test enterprise topologies without spinning up costly rack-mounted hardware.
With broad OS support and integration with agile development workflow tools, Fusion is the foundation of modern development and testing. Whether you’re working with iOS, Android or Linux, building Windows apps on a Mac, or cloud-scale container-driven web apps with workflow automation, VMware offers the most comprehensive tools available.
Fusion offers unparalleled agility, productivity and security for delivering corporate desktops and legacy applications to laptops for M&A, contractors, field workers, or as an enabler in BYOPC and Mac initiatives, even when offline. By delivering Windows and Linux on a Mac, Fusion can accelerate user adoption and productivity, while driving down costs.
