In 2007, when David Swartzendruber decided to focus the engineering efforts of his company Eclipse INC toward the development of LED Lights, he was initially stuck at a cross roads. “I liked the idea of being able to use some of the more creative software that is native to the Mac, but still needed access to a few key Windows apps for engineering.” Once he discovered VMware Fusion, the decision was easy.
When asked about his favorite feature in VMware Fusion 4 he said, “Unity is perfect for those times that you want to have a Windows and Mac Application side by side. It really gives us the best of both worlds. I also like the idea that we have the flexibility that comes with running Windows as a VM, while still being able to leverage the Mac OS for more creative endeavors.” About a year later Eclipse LED was born. They now engineer some of the brightest, most efficient LED lighting systems in the industry. Eclipse LED exclusively uses light emitting diodes as its lighting source– incorporating them into bike lights, flashlights, headlamps, and light bars for all terrain vehicles.
As they progressed with VMware Fusion they also found a great cost benefit as well. “With the help of VMware Fusion, we have been able to stay lean as a business while not sacrificing any capability from a computing perspective. It’s like getting two computers for the price of one, and it’s also nice knowing that compatibility will never be an issue. With all of the advantages of VMware Fusion 4, Eclipse LED is that much more capable of creating the exact products their customers want. We are truly enthusiast of all the products we create, and the more capable we are at creating the best products possible the better. Without a doubt VMware Fusion plays a part in that.”
