Oracle VirtualBox[edit]

  • runs on Windows (4 version on Windows XP+), Linux, Mac
  • vhd disk type hardly resized even by VBoxManage.exe

vmdk disk type allows pointing on partition[edit]

to enable guest ssd

was able to create virtual machine of linux with raw partition:

  • VBoxManage internalcommands listpartitions -rawdisk \\.\PhysicalDrive1
  • VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename d:\u.vmdk -rawdisk \\.\PhysicalDrive1 -partitions 2

якщо видає помилкую Cannot open the raw disk: VERR_SHARING_VIOLATION, то треба витягнути-вставити SATA кабель

go to real hardware[edit]

також можна з будь-якої віртуальної машини переїхати на фізичний комп VBoxManage internalcommands converttoraw

VMware Player[edit]

  • 16 Removed Support for Windows 7 as a host OS
  • 7 version needs Windows 64 7+ or Linux 64
  • 6 version needs Windows Vista+ or Linux

VMware Tools for Linux[edit]


OpenVZ/LXC, KVM[edit]

Virtuozzo leverages OpenVZ as its core of a virtualization solution

easy to run environment with Virtuozzo using Vagrant

LXC uses the following kernel features to contain processes: Kernel namespaces (ipc, uts, mount, pid, network and user) Apparmor and SELinux profiles Seccomp policies Chroots (using pivot_root)... something in the middle between a chroot and a full fledged virtual machine... language bindings for the API: python3..lua..Go..ruby..python2..Haskell

KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware... one can run multiple virtual machines running unmodified Linux or Windows images.

Why virtual machines are needed?[edit]

  • to test with IE 9, IE 10
