VirtualBox is a cross-platform application which will e enable you to run multiple operating systems on your PC at the same time, inside one or more virtual machines.The program is developed for general-purpose use and it can run on both desktops and servers.
VirtualBox allows you to easily run or test applications written for other operating systems rebooting your PC. This application 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 can be used for testing and disaster recovery purposes as well. The virtual machine may act as a "container" which 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.
