MacStadium brings Orka Desktop for Devops – Computerworld

Orka Desktop, for free local virtualization

Orka Desktop is a free macOS virtualization tool that lets you deploy virtual Macs locally. What this means to developers, of course, is that they can more easily test apps on virtual Macs, which should help accelerate and democratize the development process.

This is particularly handy as single-use VMs provide trustworthy test results because they act as fresh installs, and subsequent testing takes place on a brand new VM. Use of such ephemeral VMs is becoming an industry standard approach in DevOps.

“Developers regularly use virtualization tooling, but most aren’t aware of the fundamental differences and optimizations that tools can provide for Mac,” said Jason Davis, MacStadium’s chief product officer.
