Không biết vì sao mà mình không thích phần mềm của Microsoft lắm. Nên hôm nay mình đưa bài viết về VirtualBox của Sun Microsystem (Mặc dù MS đã có Virtual PC).
A powerful virtualization software

VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for
hardware. Targeted at server, desktop and embedded use, VirtualBox is
now the only professional-quality virtualization solution that is also
Open Source Software.

VirtualBox is a package of strong x86
virtualization software for enterprise as well as home use.


The binaries from the download section are all released under the
VirtualBox Personal Use and Evaluation License (PUEL). Here are some key features of "VirtualBox":

· 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).
· Virtual USB Controllers. VirtualBox implements a virtual USB
controller and allows you to connect arbitrary USB devices to your
virtual machines without having to install device specific drivers on
the host.
· Remote Desktop Protocol. Unlike any other virtualization software,
VirtualBox fully supports the standard Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). A
virtual machine can act as an RDP server, allowing you to "run" the
virtual machine remotely on some thin client that merely displays the
RDP data.
· USB over RDP. With this unique feature, a virtual machine that acts as
an RDP server can still access arbitrary USB devices that are connected
on the RDP client. This way, a powerful server machine can virtualize a
lot of thin clients that merely need to display RDP data and have USB
devices plugged in.
· Shared folders. Like many other virtualization solutions, for easy
data exchange between hosts and guests, VirtualBox allows for declaring
certain host directories as "shared folders", which can then be accessed
from within virtual machines.
