InnoTek VirtualBox is a family of powerful x86 virtualization products for enterprise as well as home use.
Targeted at server, desktop and embedded use, it is now the only
professional-quality virtualization solution that is also Open Source
Some of the features of VirtualBox are:
* Modularity. VirtualBox has an extremely modular design with
well-defined internal programming interfaces and a client/server
design. This makes it easy to control it from several interfaces at
once: for example, you can start a virtual machine in a typical virtual
machine GUI and then control that machine from the command line, or
possibly remotely. VirtualBox also comes with a full Software
Development Kit: even though it is Open Source Software, you don?t have
to hack the source to write a new interface for VirtualBox.
Virtual machine descriptions in XML. The configuration settings of
virtual machines are stored entirely in XML and are independent of the
local machines. Virtual machine definitions can therefore easily be
ported to other computers.
* Guest Additions for Windows and
Linux. VirtualBox has special software that can be installed inside
Windows and Linux virtual machines to improve performance and make
integration much more seamless. Among the features provided by these
Guest Additions are mouse pointer integration and arbitrary screen
solutions (e.g. by resizing the guest window).
VirtualBox runs on Windows and Linux 32-bit hosts and supports a large
number of guest operating systems including but not limited to Windows
(NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and
2.6), and OpenBSD.
