VMware Fusion

VMware Fusion is a software hypervisor developed by VMware for Macintosh computers for running virtual machines. VMware Fusion allows Intel-based Macs to run operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, NetWare, or Solaris on virtual machines, along with their macOS operating system. We use VMware Fusion to aid in software development on various platforms.
