VMware Fusion performance better than Parallels

When a lot of talk is going around the net, it is sometimes also wise to take a backseat and reap the fruits of all those hard working engineers and staff of all the companies and give them the credit they deserve. They could be Microsoft developers working their jingles off making Office a better product; they could be XenSource programmers working hard to develop an innovative solution; they could even be VMware Fusion guys; and then they would be parallels engineers who will make yet another innovative stuff. I truly loved their "coherence". Truly!

For the same reason, we see how Fusion excelled against the great product from Parallels. We are sure Parallels will strike back.

One of Fusion's primary advantages in the test is that it takes advantage of two CPU cores, while Parallels only takes advantage of one.

We recently published an in-depth look at Fusion along with commentary from Pat Lee, product manager of at VMware. Lee said that VMware generates "less overhead, and puts less strain on your Mac than other solutions." Lee also said that only VMware supports more than 1.5GB of RAM in a virtual machine (in fact, it supports up to 8GB).
Here the rest.
