VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for hardware. Targeted at server, desktop embedded use, it is now a virtualization solution only professional quality that is also Open Source Software. Product VirtualBox is a powerful virtualization for the enterprise, as well as home use. VirtualBox provides some useful scenarios: Running multiple operating systems simultaneously. VirtualBox allows you to run more than one operating system at a time. This way, you can run software written for one operating system to another (for example, Windows software on Linux or Mac) without having to reboot to use it. Since you can deceive chart what types of hardware “virtual” must be adapted to each such operating system, you can install an operating system such as DOS or an old OS / 2 even if your real computer’s hardware is not supported by the operating system.
software vendors can use virtual machines ship Gurations entire software con fi. For example, installing the complete mail server solution on a real computer can be a tedious task. With VirtualBox, such a complex setup (then often called a “device”) can be packaged in a virtual machine. Installing and running a mail server becomes as easy as importing such an appliance into VirtualBox.
testing and disaster recovery. Once installed, the virtual machine and virtual hard disks can be considered its “container” that can be arbitrarily frozen, woke up, copied, backed up, and transported between hosts. In addition, using another VirtualBox feature called “Photo”, you can save a particular state of a virtual machine to return to this state, if necessary. In this way, one can freely experiment with a computing environment. If something goes wrong (for example, after installing software is problematic or visitor infecting virus), you can easily return to a previous snapshot and avoid the need of frequent backups and restores. Any number of images can be created, allowing you to travel back and forth while the virtual machine. You can delete images while the VM is running to reclaim disk space.
infrastructure consolidation. Virtualization can significantly fi cantly reduce hardware and power costs. Most of the time, computers today use only a fraction of the energy potential and run with a lower average claims. A lot of hardware resources and thus wasted electricity. So, instead of running many such physical computers are used only partially, it is possible to pack multiple virtual machines on some hosts itself and balance the load between them.
