Vmware Fusion 12
Expiring Virtual Machines
For workers assigned to short-term projects, temporary employees, or for a software evaluation, create restricted virtual machines that expire at a predefined date and time. When powered on, the virtual machine will query the server at specified time intervals, storing the current system time in the restricted virtual machine's policy file as the last trusted timestamp. An expired virtual machine will automatically suspend and will not restart without administrator intervention.
Ready for the Future, Today
Fusion Pro is ready for OS X El Capitan. Install El Capitan in a virtual machine to test its new features, capabilities and compatibility with your applications without disrupting the host Mac. With under-the-hood performance improvements and overall smarter design, Fusion Pro and El Capitan together introduce new ways to be more productive while delivering a snappier and more fluid experience when running Windows on the Mac.
Take Fusion to the Cloud
Fusion Pro now provides a connection to VMware vCloud Air, as well as improving integration with vSphere, ESXi, and Workstation servers, allowing you to extend and scale your virtual machines in a compatible cloud. With a common platform powering the VMware ecosystem, Fusion Pro can easily connect to remote environments to launch, access console, upload or download virtual machines directly from your Mac. Fusion Pro also supports OVF import and export to leverage compatibility with industry standards. This allows technical professionals to work with local and remote virtual machines side by side for optimal flexibility, bringing the power of the vSphere data center and vCloud Air to the Mac.
Powerful Virtual Machines, Powerful Graphics.
Fusion Pro is optimized for the highest density 4K, 5K and Retina displays to give you a crisp and detailed view of your Windows applications. Experience more fluid graphics for every application with newly added DirectX 10 and OpenGL 3.3 capabilities. Everyday applications like Office, as well as highly demanding 3D applications such as AutoCAD and SOLIDWORKS, run more smoothly than ever. Create powerful virtual machines with up to 16 vCPUs, 8TB virtual disks, and up to 64 GB of memory to run the most demanding applications. You can also give graphics-intensive applications an additional boost by allocating up to 2GB of video memory to a virtual machine.
Restricted Virtual Machines
Create and control policies around your virtual machines and deliver applications to end-users in a Fusion Pro restricted virtual machine container. Ensure corporate compliance by restricting access to virtual machine settings like drag-and-drop and cut-and-paste, disabling shared folders, and restricting access to USB devices. Restricted virtual machines are encrypted and password-protected to ensure that unauthorized users are unable to tamper with the corporate virtual machines settings, data, or the virtual machine itself.
Built on top of VMware’s enterprise-class 64-bit engine, Fusion Pro is engineered from the bottom up to deliver a near-native experience for your virtual environments. With a marked 3x performance increase for suspend and resume functions when working with encrypted volumes, you can restore secure Windows environments faster than ever. Whether you are doing CPU intensive operations like encryption/decryption, multimedia or code compilation, or if you are using Office and productivity applications day-to-day, Fusion Pro delivers maximum performance by leveraging the latest in Mac hardware technology, faster PCIe-based storage and overall greater power and efficiency under the hood.
Build Complex Virtual Networks
With improved IPv6 support, including IPv6 Network Address Translation, you can create more complex networking topologies. Add and remove virtual IPv4 or IPv6 networks and create custom virtual networking configurations, ideal for testing and demonstration environments without impacting the Mac's network configuration. With updated networking controls and compatibility with the VMware ecosystem, Fusion Pro users can recreate complex cloud architectures right on the Mac to validate design before implementation.
Built for Developers
Fusion Pro speaks to developers with powerful integrations from the most innovative software technologies. Easily push workloads into the cloud from Fusion Pro with vCloud Air integration or deploy a VMware Project Photon virtual machine to run containers from Docker, rkt or Garden, ensuring maximum compatibility with the VMware ecosystem. Use modern tools such as Chef, Hashicorp Vagrant or docker-machine to automate virtual machine and container deployment, or build Universal apps for Windows 10 devices without ever leaving the Mac.
Snapshots and Linked Clones
With Fusion Pro it’s easy to safeguard and protect virtual machines. The Snapshot feature preserves the state of a virtual machine so users can return to it at any time, allowing users to upgrade to new operating systems like Windows 10 without any risk. The Clone feature makes duplicating Fusion Pro virtual machines easy. Full or Linked clones allow you to make unlimited copies of a virtual machine from an installation and configuration baseline. Linked clones are the fastest, easiest, and most efficient way to duplicate complex setups for testing and custom demos.

Simplify License Management
Buying and managing Fusion Pro licenses is easy. Purchase licenses in volume and configure them so your end users are productive using Windows on a Mac from their first power-on. Use the My VMware licensing portal to easily manage all your license keys and support entitlements. Merge license keys together, break them apart or downgrade them to an earlier release, as you see fit.
Take Fusion on the Go
With up to 65% improved performance with OpenGL applications, and up to 15% improvement for DirectX 9, Fusion Pro takes full advantage of the powerful hardware found in the latest Macs. For MacBook Pros with a discrete and an integrated GPU, Fusion Pro will automatically use the most appropriate GPU depending on the task at hand, activating the more powerful discrete GPU for demanding 3D applications or using the integrated GPU when performing day-to-day tasks. For added control users can manually specify the GPU to use, or let Fusion Pro automatically decide, providing you the best performance while least impacting your battery life. Your virtual machine is automatically suspended when you close the lid, preventing any battery drain while you’re on the go. With advanced resolution handling and display topology detection, you can trust that when your MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro is connected to an external display that Windows will look as crisp as can be. If your Mac has a native Retina display or is connected to a 4K display, you’ll get a seamless experience even when running virtual machines across Retina and non-Retina displays.
Plugged in to Your World
Enhancements for applications such as Skype or Microsoft Lync enable Macs equipped with a FaceTime or iSight camera to conduct high-quality video conferences within a Windows virtual machine. Fusion Pro also enables fast file transfer with USB 3.0 support, supports HD audio with 5.1 surround sound, and supports Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology.
Enable Macs in Business
IT organizations today can take advantage of the BYOD trend by providing internal users with approved corporate Windows desktops as secure, policy-based virtual machines. Take a new approach to delivering IT-blessed desktops to end-user Macs by using restricted virtual machines with VMware Fusion Pro. Enforce corporate security policy-based capabilities such as encryption, virtual machine lease times or expiration, or even prevent users from modifying the virtual machine’s internals or configuration.
Single Virtual Machine Mode
Fusion Pro can further reduce the cost of supporting Windows desktops with single virtual machine mode, which limits user access to the Virtual Machine library, eliminates the ability to create new virtual machines, and reduces menu options. If you are running an IT department and need mass deployment options, this is the best option on the Mac.
State of the Art Desktop Virtualization for Mac
Fusion Pro’s leading edge features help you tackle complex tasks on your Mac by letting you run applications on many operating systems, including Windows and Linux, at the same time on the same Mac without rebooting. Evaluate new operating systems and test software applications, patches or reference architectures in an isolated and safe environment that is also compatible with VMware vSphere. Fusion Pro even integrates with VMware vCloud Air, the cloud service by VMware, bringing even more cloud management capabilities to the Mac desktop.
Create Powerful Virtual Machines
With the ability to allocate multiple processor cores, gigabytes of main memory or graphics memory to each virtual machine, Fusion Pro maximizes your Mac’s resources to run the most demanding applications in a virtual environment. Whether developing software, testing new operating systems or running powerful 3D applications like AutoCad or SolidWorks, Fusion Pro can do it all.
There’s a Reason it’s Called Fusion “Pro”
Fusion Pro takes virtualization on the Mac to the next level with professional features designed to help users save precious time and effort on a variety of tasks. Added cloud support for VMware vCloud Air and VMware vSphere allows you to bring the power of the enterprise hybrid cloud to your Mac. With the ability to create linked clones to save disk space, set up custom IPv4 and IPv6 networking configurations with the network editor or connect to vSphere to create, run, upload or download a virtual machine, Fusion Pro is the ultimate tool for today’s technical professionals.
From Your Mac to the Cloud
