Virtual Machines
Virtual machines are based on computer architectures and provide functionality of a physical computer. Their implementations may involve specialized hardware, software, or a combination. A virtual machine is hardware or software that enables one computer system (called the host) to behave like another computer system (called the guest). A virtual machine typically enables the host system to run software or use peripheral devices designed for the guest system.
