VirtualBox is a powerful virtualization product for x86 and AMD64/Intel64 systems, perfect for both professional and home use. On the one hand, VirtualBox is an application with a huge list of features and high performance that is perfect for corporate use. On the other hand, it is a free product that is freely distributed under the GNU General Public License.

Nowadays VirtualBox can be run under most modern operating systems: Windows, Linux, Macintosh and Solaris. The product supports a large number of guest operating systems, including the Windows family (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and 2.6), Solaris and OpenSolaris, OS/2, and OpenBSD. However, this list is far from exhaustive. VirtualBox is constantly evolving, with frequent product updates that bring new features and support to even more guest operating systems.

The program is very easy to use. You can use network shares to share files between "external" and "internal" operating systems. To interact with the network, the program creates its own network connection. In addition, the physical and virtual operating systems use a single clipboard, which is also convenient for exchanging information. Virtual operating systems can be installed in exactly the same way as conventional operating systems. Installation is supported from optical disks as well as from external USB storage media or even from disk images. Before you start the installation, you should allocate some system resources to the new system - the maximum available amount of RAM and processor cores, as well as assign the maximum level of their loading. Fine hardware configuration parameters are also available for adjustment.
