Oracle VirtualBox is a free application that provides a family of powerful x86 virtualization tools designed for desktop, server and embedded use.
VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application that can be on many systems, including Linux, Solaris, Mac OS, as well as all Windows hosts.
Oracle VirtualBox is portable, it requires no hardware virtualization, includes guest additions, great hardware support, USB device support, hardware compatibility, full ACPI support, multiscreen resolutions, built-in iSCSI support, PXE network boot, multigeneration branched snapshots, remote machine display, extensible RDP authentication, and USB over RDP.
Oracle VirtualBox is a platform-independent application that runs on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and Solaris operating systems, supporting both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.
- You will need to install some additional libraries on your Linux system in order to run VirtualBox - in particular, you will need libxalan-c, libxerces-c and version 5 of libstdc . How to install these will depend on the Linux distribution you are using.
