Download and Install Virtual Box
Using a Virtual box can be really handy. So, in this blog, I will be discussing the applicability of Virtual Box. Furthermore, I will also be providing detailed guidelines for installing a virtual box in MacOS.
VirtualBox is a software that allows its users to install any OS (Operating System). It is easy to install any OS through VirtualBox. Therefore, in this blog, you will be learning to install VirtualBox to further install any type of OS (Operating System). Here, I will be using the Mac OS to download VirtualBox.
What is VirtualBox?
VirtualBox is cross-platform virtualization software. It is a software that allows users to run all the types of OS (Operating System) in a single machine and to freely switch between OS instances running simultaneously. It can create and manage guest virtual machines each with a guest operating system and its own virtual environment.
Why should we use a virtual box?
The consolidation of servers is a major reason for using VMs. Many operating systems and device implementations use a small number of the available physical resources to bare metal. You can place many virtual servers on each physical server by virtualizing your servers to improve hardware usage. You don’t need to buy additional physical resources and minimize the need for power, space, and cooling in the data center. VMs allow failover and redundancy which can only be done previously by additional hardware. A VM offers an environment isolated from the rest of a device and so anything running on the host hardware will not interfere. Since VMs are isolated, they are a good way to test or build a development environment for new applications. Even, to support a specific process, you can run a single VM.
