vmware-fusion-8-how-to-put-windows-10-os-x-together-in-simple-harmony

The Windows 10 operating system marks a drastic change from all previous operating systems. 

Using VMware Fusion 8 (in fact, version 7 also offers many of these capabilities, as well), Mac users can use and enjoy all of the Windows 10 applications, without having to migrate to Windows/Microsoft machines and operating system. 

 Not too many years ago, there was positively nothing compatible about Windows and Mac. But today’s machines are made to be more compatible, and with tools like VMware, you can take advantage of both operating systems on a single machine. There are a few ways to do this: you can use VMware Fusion 8 to run both Windows 10 and OS X together, or to hide Windows 10 but continue to use all of its applications. 

  Maximize the Screen for Easier Viewing

VMware Fusion 8

Mac users are more enthusiastic about Windows 10 than any other version of Windows so far. It marks a drastic deviation from Microsoft Windows versions of old, especially the tremendously unpopular Windows 8. With VMware Fusion, you can enjoy all of the Windows applications without using the Windows 10 interface at all. 

The first thing you might want to do is to resize the virtual machine window so that you can see more on the screen. You can resize the screen using the mouse pointer, or you can click the Maximize button to go into full-screen mode. Once in full-screen mode, you can go back to OS X, where VMware Fusion will allow you to use gestures like the 3-finger swipe, which will allow you to easily navigate into and out of each OS. 

Swipe to the right to enter OS X, and swipe to the left to enter Windows 10. To exit full-screen mode, hover the mouse pointer over the top of the screen and click on View. From there, select Single Window. You can also hover the mouse near the bottom of the screen in order to activate the OS X Dock while in full-screen mode. 

Using Unity View 

 VMware Fusion offers a feature called Unity View, which allows you to hide the Windows desktop, yet still continue to use all of your handy Windows applications. Apps you use will automatically open into Windows mode, allowing you to use them along side the OS X applications. You can also use the OS X Dock to launch and to minimize Windows applications. 

Using the Windows Start Menu in OS X Global Menu Bar

Unity View

VMware Fusion 8 allows you to utilize the popular Windows Start Menu directly from the Global Menu Bar on the Mac. This gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to fast and easy access of your files and documents. 

VMware Fusion also provides fast and easy access to the Start menu, offered as a Global menu bar item, so that you can find and open files quickly.

Use Case - Tamper-resistant Clinical Trials

Goal:

Blockchain PoCs were unsuccessful due to complexity and lack of developers.

Still the goal of data immutability as well as client verification is a crucial. Furthermore, the system needs to be easy to use and operate (allowing backup, maintenance windows aso.).

Implementation:

immudb is running in different datacenters across the globe. All clinical trial information is stored in immudb either as transactions or the pdf documents as a whole.

Having that single source of truth with versioned, timestamped, and cryptographically verifiable records, enables a whole new way of transparency and trust.

Use Case - Finance

Goal:

Store the source data, the decision and the rule base for financial support from governments timestamped, verifiable.

A very important functionality is the ability to compare the historic decision (based on the past rulebase) with the rulebase at a different date. Fully cryptographic verifiable Time Travel queries are required to be able to achieve that comparison.

Implementation:

While the source data, rulebase and the documented decision are stored in verifiable Blobs in immudb, the transaction is stored using the relational layer of immudb.

That allows the use of immudb’s time travel capabilities to retrieve verified historic data and recalculate with the most recent rulebase.

Use Case - eCommerce and NFT marketplace

Goal:

No matter if it’s an eCommerce platform or NFT marketplace, the goals are similar:

  • High amount of transactions (potentially millions a second)
  • Ability to read and write multiple records within one transaction
  • prevent overwrite or updates on transactions
  • comply with regulations (PCI, GDPR, …)


Implementation:

immudb is typically scaled out using Hyperscaler (i. e. AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure) distributed across the Globe. Auditors are also distributed to track the verification proof over time. Additionally, the shop or marketplace applications store immudb cryptographic state information. That high level of integrity and tamper-evidence while maintaining a very high transaction speed is key for companies to chose immudb.

Use Case - IoT Sensor Data

Goal:

IoT sensor data received by devices collecting environment data needs to be stored locally in a cryptographically verifiable manner until the data is transferred to a central datacenter. The data integrity needs to be verifiable at any given point in time and while in transit.

Implementation:

immudb runs embedded on the IoT device itself and is consistently audited by external probes. The data transfer to audit is minimal and works even with minimum bandwidth and unreliable connections.

Whenever the IoT devices are connected to a high bandwidth, the data transfer happens to a data center (large immudb deployment) and the source and destination date integrity is fully verified.

Use Case - DevOps Evidence

Goal:

CI/CD and application build logs need to be stored auditable and tamper-evident.
A very high Performance is required as the system should not slow down any build process.
Scalability is key as billions of artifacts are expected within the next years.
Next to a possibility of integrity validation, data needs to be retrievable by pipeline job id or digital asset checksum.

Implementation:

As part of the CI/CD audit functionality, data is stored within immudb using the Key/Value functionality. Key is either the CI/CD job id (i. e. Jenkins or GitLab) or the checksum of the resulting build or container image.
