Oracle VM VirtualBox
Oracle VM VirtualBox is a powerful virtualization software. Oracle VM VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for hardware. Targeted at server, desktop and embedded use, It is now the only professional-quality virtualization solution that is also Open Source Software.
VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application. What does that mean? For one thing, it installs on your existing Intel or AMD-based computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. Secondly, it extends the capabilities of your existing computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time. So, for example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac, run Windows Server 2008 on your Linux server, run Linux on your Windows PC, and so on, all alongside your existing applications. You can install and run as many virtual machines as you like - the only practical limits are disk space and memory.
Since VirtualBox is designed to provide a generic virtualization environment for x86 systems, it may run operating systems of any kind, even those that are not officially supported by Oracle Corporation. Oracle VM VirtualBox is a package of strong x86 virtualization software for enterprise as well as home use.
VirtualBox's main features:
1. Portability. VirtualBox runs on a large number of 32-bit and 64-bit host operating systems
2. No hardware virtualization required. For many scenarios, VirtualBox does not require the processor features built into newer hardware like Intel VT-x or AMD-V.
3. Guest Additions: shared folders, seamless windows, 3D virtualization. The VirtualBox Guest Additions are software packages which can be installed inside of supported guest systems to improve their performance and to provide additional integration and communication with the host system.
4. Great hardware support. Among others, VirtualBox supports:
* Guest multiprocessing (SMP).
* USB 2.0 device support
* Hardware compatibility
* Full ACPI support
* Multiscreen resolutions
* Built-in iSCSI support
* PXE Network boot
5. Multigeneration branched snapshots. VirtualBox can save arbitrary snapshots of the state of the virtual machine.
6. Clean architecture; unprecedented modularity. VirtualBox has an extremely modular design with well-defined internal programming interfaces and a clean separation of client and server code.
7. Remote machine display. You can run any virtual machine in a special VirtualBox program that acts as a server for the VirtualBox Remote Desktop Protocol (VRDP), a backward-compatible extension of the standard Remote Desktop Protocol.
