About Virtualization

In computing, virtualization refers to an act of creating a virtual machine within a computer. In simple words installing one operating system inside another operating system. For example – a computer that is running Microsoft Windows may host a virtual machine that looks like a computer with the Linux operating system. There are two terms involved in virtualization-

1- Host Machine –  The computer which runs the virtual machine is called Host Machine. In the above case windows is Host Machine.

2 – Virtual Machine – The machine that runs on host machine is called Virtual Machine. Linux is virtual machine in the above case.
