Virtualization allows us to run operating systems on a computer as a client. This means, among other advantages, that they do not require hard disk partitions or fiddling with complex configurations. VirtualBox is one of the most used tools for this purpose.
Run multiple operating systems and avoid complex installations
VirtualBox is a specific tool for virtualizing x86 architectures that can also run virtual machines remotely. Among the advantages, it offers us the capability to simultaneously run multiple operating systems, and be faster and easier to use than a full installation of software.
- Portability across platforms that allows us to create virtual machines capable of running on different operating systems.
- Without the need of specific hardware for virtualization.
- Virtualizes a wide range of operating systems such as Windows, GNU/Linux, OS/2 Warp or MS-DOS operating systems being hosted Windows, Mac OS X, OS/2 Warp, GNU/Linux or Solaris/OpenSolaris.
When it comes to testing software that we're not sure we'll be keeping, one of our biggest doubts is whether or not it will somehow affect the configuration of your computer. VirtualBox solves this problem as it can also be used as a testing ground for new programs. Whatever you do on the virtual machine will have no impact whatsoever on the host operating system, resulting in a real airtight container for riskier testing.
