Parallels Workstation is a powerful desktop virtualization solution that enables users to create multiple independently operating, completely self-contained virtual machines on a single Mac. Virtual machines can be created to run a wide range of popular operating systems, including the entire Windows family, Linux distributions from Mandrake, Red Hat and SUSE, OS/2 and FreeBSD.

Key Features:

Hypervisor Technology for Stronger, More Stable Virtual Machines

Parallels Workstation is the first desktop virtualization solution to include a lightweight hypervisor that directly controls some of the host computer’s hardware resources. The inclusion of this trusted, mature technology ensures that virtual PCs built using Parallels Workstation are the most stable and efficient available.

Optimized for Hardware Virtualization

Parallels Workstation’s lightweight hypervisor fully supports the benefits of next-generation CPUs built on Intel’s VT architecture, and will support AMD Pacifica architecture when it is released to the general public.

Strong OS Support

A sophisticated virtual machine engine that offers the broadest support of x86-based operating systems, including the entire Windows family (3.1, 3.11, 95, 98, Me, 2000, XP and 2003), Linux distributions from popular distributors like Red Hat, SuSE, Mandriva, Debian and Fedora Core, FreeBSD, “Legacy” operating systems like OS/2, eComStation and MS-DOS.

Easy to Install, Easy to Use

A powerful wizard enables users to create virtual machines in seconds. The industry’s cleanest, most user-friendly management console ensures hassle free control of all virtual machines.

Highly Efficient

A small program footprint and trusted hypervisor technology maximizes the efficiency of both the primary and guest OSes.
