VMware has announced it is dropping support of macOS that your development team needs.
macOS Ventura released. May work (partially or wholly) on VMware but is not supported.
All submissions to the App Store must be built with Xcode 14.1 or later. Xcode 14.1 requires macOS13 (Ventura), which is not fully supported by VMware.
It’s time to transition to a new virtualization tool.
MacStadium has already successfully transitioned leading organizations from VMware to Orka Platform. Our team can scope and set up a free, custom proof-of-concept environment and provide technical support throughout your transition.
What this means to VMware users:
VMware will discontinue support for and stop undertaking certification of future vSphere ESXi releases on Mac platforms. This includes the 2019 Mac Pro and other Intel-based machines. If your team relies on VMware for iOS and/or macOS app development, you will need to transition to a new virtualization tool that supports the newest versions of macOS and Xcode.
Orka Platform by MacStadium is the natural replacement:
Orka Platform by MacStadium enables macOS orchestration and life cycle managementin a cloud environment on genuine Apple hardware. It delivers high-performance virtual macOS environments in seconds for everything from simple Xcode builds to fully integrated, complex automated CI/CD pipelines.
Change can be hard but this one doesn’t have to be.
Leading organizations are already migrating from VMware to Orka for a more scalable solution that supports Apple silicon.
- Automated CI/CD pipelines–Extend your CI/CD pipeline by connecting OrkaPlatform to the most popular DevOps tools and easily orchestrate the wholething via Orka Platform’s RESTful API.
- Enterprise-grade performance–Orka Platform was designed to be lightweightand built specifically for Mac. Its use of Kubernetes makes it highly scalable andable to support enterprise-level workflows.
