Virtualization Software for Mac

DECS has found 2 different free software that allow for virtualization on Mac. VMware Fusion Player and VirtualBox. We have found VMware Fusion to be the easier of the two products to install, but does require that you create an account in order to download it. VirtualBox does not require this, but may require more work to install. Please make sure that your system is fully updated before trying to install either of these applications. We can not guarantee compatibility with older versions of OSX. 


OwnCloud is a file collaboration tool provided by DECS to allow groups to exchange files over the Internet without all members having engineering accounts.  OwnCloud provides some of the functionality of DropBox while maintaining your data on EGR servers.  OwnCloud replaces WebFE for file collaboration in the engineering environment.
