Have you ever thought about trying out a computer operating system that is not familiar to you? You may be using Microsoft Windows all the time, and you should complete tasks on other operating systems, such as Ubuntu, Linux, or Centos.

There are many possibilities: the first and most important possibility is that you remove Windows and install Ubuntu, or install Ubuntu as a dual boot system in parallel with Windows, or you may fall in love with your windows to maintain Ubuntu. As long as the work continues, you'll never want to use Ubuntu again.

You may want to use multiple operating systems at one time because you want to test the network software that should run on many operating systems. Now you need to buy many computers, install and configure the network, and test the software on the network. But wait! Have a better choice.

As a result, the blitz is now being prepared for multiple operating systems that can be used simultaneously by a single host. Say hello to Oracle Virtual Box and get ready for rock.

Multitasking in Your Way

Install the virtualization system on a single host, and then install as many independent guest operating systems as possible on the virtual system. Each guest operating system runs independently of other operating systems. Frequently, the guest operating systems do not even know that they are hosted by other operating systems, and there are other parallel client systems. Interesting, is not it? A good example of what you can try on a personal computer or laptop is also free ? is the "Oracle Virtual Box" https://www.virtualbox.org/. Oracle Virtual Box is available for commercial and home use. It has many features.

Virtual box: A complete package

Oracle Virtual Box can be installed on Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and Solaris hosts. It supports a large number of guest operating systems including Windows, Linux, Solaris, OpenBSD, Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, Fedora and more.

An interesting fact about virtualization is that the guest operating system installed can simply be cloned into the same Virtual Box and even cloned into Virtual Box on other computers. This feature is typically used by software vendors who use virtual machines to send the entire software configuration. For example, installing a full LAMP and an email server on an actual machine can be a tedious task. Vendors can simplify this by grouping the software into a virtual machine. This virtual machine can be imported very easily for many virtual machines.

Disaster Recovery Management

Virtualization is available for testing and disaster recovery. In this case, a virtual system backup (called a snapshot) is as simple as counting numbers, and restoring the system from any previous snapshot is quick and easy.

Virtualization also saves infrastructure costs. Save hardware and energy. With virtualization, many systems share the processing and memory of a hardware system.

In addition to Oracle, there are many other vendors who have also developed virtualization software. Some of them are: VMware, Parallels, QEMU, and Microsoft Hyper-V

This is an impressive job in installing virtual boxes. Of course, the real kicker is the work and the convenience it generates.

So do several tasks at your fingertips and continue to focus on more blogs, which provide step-by-step instructions for installing Oracle Virtual Box on Windows 7, followed by Ubuntu and other guest operating systems.
