For all mommy hackers and cyber security enthusiasts who are looking for convenient and reliable ways to use virtual machines on their Mac, VM Ware Workstation Player becomes a great option. And today we will look at how to configure this virtual machine with the Mac OS Ventura image. VM Ware Workstation Player is one of the leading virtualization platforms on the market. It is characterized by stability, high performance and user-friendliness. But for best results, it’s important to properly configure your virtual machine. Mac OS Ventura is one of the latest versions of the operating system from Apple and it has already gained popularity among users due to its improvements and innovations. But what if you want to test or work with Ventura without directly installing it on your computer? This is where VM Ware Workstation Player comes to the rescue. In our in-depth guide, we will reveal step by step how to create a virtual machine on Mac OS using Mac OS Ventura ISO image.

What is the difference between VMware Workstation Player and Virtual Box?

Virtual machines are becoming a key tool for those seeking maximum security in the online space. They create an isolated environment that effectively blocks out potential threats and malware. Using a virtual machine reduces the risk of compromising the underlying system and provides an additional layer of protection against intrusions. Thus, for those who want to keep their data safe, virtual machines are becoming an indispensable tool in today’s digital world. VMware Player and VirtualBox are two well-known virtualization platforms for creating a virtual machine. Their key difference is that VMware Player is free for personal use only, while VirtualBox is completely free and open source software available for personal and commercial use. VMware Player is developed by VMware, a leader in virtualization, while VirtualBox is owned by Oracle. “Oracle” is an American corporation that specializes in the production of software, hardware for computing and other products and services in the field of information technology. VirtualBox, thanks to its transparent operation, has a larger set of features and settings, so we consider this virtual machine to be the best. Also, VirtualBox provides more flexible options and this is all thanks to its open source. On top of that, compatibility in VirtualBox, thanks to its open nature, supports a wider range of operating systems compared to VMware Player. Both tools, VMWare Player and VirtualBox, have their merits and each of them may be better depending on the specific use case scenario. The best way to determine which app best suits your needs is to install both and experiment with them. Only practice will help you figure out which virtual machine best meets your requirements.
