VirtualBox is a cross-platform software that will empower you to use multiple operating systems on your computer at the same time, inside one or more virtual machines.The application is designed for general-purpose use and it can run on desktop or servers. You can run as many virtual machines you want, the only limits being represented by your computer's hardware resources (disk space and memory).
VirtualBox is useful if you want to run or test applications written for other operating systems without the need of rebooting your computer. This tool also lets you install older operating systems (DOS or OS/2) on virtual machines, even if they are no longer supported by your real computer's hardware.
VirtualBox is also useful for software vendors, allowing them to ship entire software configurations to their clients. The application eases software installations by allowing complex setups to be packed into a virtual machine.
VirtualBox can be used for testing and disaster recovery purposes as well. The virtual machine may act as a "container" that can be copied, backed up, frozen, woken up, and transferred between various hosts. Users can also save a virtual machine's state and revert back to it.
VirtualBox lets you experiment with various computing environments, ensuring you that if something will go wrong you will be able to undo the malicious changes (virus infections or installation of misbehaving software) without being needed of backups and restores.
VirtualBox can also help you reduce your company's costs with hardware and electricity, allowing your computer to use its full potential power and eliminating the need of running lots of physical computers that are only partially used. With this software you can replace a large number of computers with a few powerful hosts an pack many virtual machines onto them.
