You can create virtual machines, import virtual machines created elsewhere, and migrate virtual machines converted from physical PCs. If you have
Fusion Pro, you can also clone existing virtual machines.
Create a Virtual Machine How you create a virtual machine depends on its guest operating system. Virtual machines created using Fusion 6 and later are created with SATA virtual disks or CD drives.
Upload a Virtual Machine to a Remote Server When you upload a virtual machine to a remote server, Fusion Pro copies the virtual machine to the remote host and datastore that you select. The original virtual machine remains on the host system.
Upload a Virtual Machine to VMware vCloud Air When you upload a virtual machine to VMware® vCloud® Air™, Fusion Pro copies the virtual machine to the VMware vCloud Air server and the virtual data center that you select. The original virtual machine remains on the host system.
Download a Virtual Machine from a Remote Server Your users can download a virtual machine from a remote server.
Migrate an Existing Physical PC to a Virtual Machine You can migrate your existing Windows PC onto your Mac. Fusion recreates your PC as a virtual machine, and you can continue to use your PC applications and files.
Importing Windows Virtual Machines You can import into Fusion virtual machines that you created with Parallels Desktop, Microsoft Virtual PC, as well as virtual machines using the Open Virtualization Format (OVF).
Export a Virtual Machine to OVF Format You can export a virtual machine from Fusion Pro to Open Virtualization Format (OVF). You can export both .ovf and .ova files.
Installing and Using VMware Tools VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machine's guest operating system and improves management of the virtual machine.
Cloning Virtual Machines with Fusion Pro Installing a guest operating system and applications can be time consuming. With Fusion Pro, you can make many copies of a virtual machine from a single installation and configuration process.
