Software description

A VirtualBox or what is commonly known as VB is a powerful computer virtualization product. It is a computer software installed on a computer operating system, allowing you to run multiple operating systems simultaneously on your computer. VirtualBox allows installations of additional operating systems known as Guest Operating systems or virtual machines run virtual environment. It is one of the most popular Virtualization software in the current technological world.

VirtualBox was initially a product developed by Innotek GmbH who released it in the year 2007. In the year 2008, Sun Microsystems purchased the company. Afterward, Oracle acquired the company in the year 2010. Oracle is now in charge of the development of VirtualBox which is now titled Oracle VM VirtualBox.

VirtualBox runs on various operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and Solaris hosts. It supports quite a large number of guest operating systems namely; Solaris and OpenSolaris, OS/2, DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4, 2.6, 3.x and 4.x), Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10), and OpenBSD.

Once you have installed VirtualBox on your computer running on an operating system such as Windows, you can decide to install any guest operating system such as Linux, Solaris, Ubuntu, and Windows. Besides, to customers who are interested in network configurations, VirtualBox allows you to install servers provided from different companies such as, Windows server or even Ubuntu server.

One advantage of VirtualBox is that any guest operating system installed in it has no direct impact on the host operating system. Therefore, in case of a crash of the guest operating system now referred to as a virtual machine, the host operating system will not be affected. In such situations where the guest operating system crashes, delete the virtual machine and create another.

Oracle is actively developing VirtualBox with frequent releases every year. Each newer version has more exciting features that enable a smooth running of both the software and the operating systems installed on it.
