"To virtualize operating systems"

What do you like best?

VirtualBox is the perfect tool to virtualize machines and run various operating systems such as: Linux distributions, Windows in different versions, Mac, among others. The management system is easy and the installation of the images is very fast. USB 3.0 support is great and allows for adequate flexibility. With VirtualBox I can have multiple systems in the same computer, thanks to this I can plan performance tests and evaluate features in programs that work better in one system or another. VirtualBox has an extensive community of users that help you solve any problem and since OpenSource is free you can make modifications according to your taste.

What do you dislike?

The consumption of VirtualBox resources is exaggerated, a lot of RAM is needed for each machine and this is not efficient for use on the server. Many cores must be assigned for machines that need to run heavy programs and this does not facilitate the virtualization of services. The interface of VirtualBox is already old and outdated, it urgently needs a new appearance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to virtualize many machines and have the necessary hardware resources, install VirtualBox and you will not be disappointed. The developer community keeps the software on the line.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With VirtualBox we can virtualize simulations, test environments, virtual scenarios and anything we want to achieve the validation of the proposed solution. With VirtualBox we can also run specific programs that work better on other operating systems than Windows.

" the best hypervisor you could use."

What do you like best?

virtualbox in my opinion is one of the best hypervisors there is, I like it because it is powerful, easy to install, easy to use, it is also quick to show virtualized systems with fluidity, the configuration of the machines are easy, and do not have major complications. , it is intuitive you do not need more knowledge to achieve a configuration.

What do you dislike?

I do not have any disgust with this application. I really think it's great, it has everything I need to virtualize, it's fluid and complete. handle the virtual machines that you want with a very good fluency, as long as you have a good machine with the necessary requirements to be able to virtualize the personal whim.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've been using virtualbox for a long time, and my recommendation is that they try it so they can appreciate, it's not complicated, their learning curve is practically nil, there are few skills that are needed, even with tutorial videos they will learn to configure any virtual machine that are proposed, it is very good to do tests before taking any product to production and to learn a new system, it serves as help to make well functioning laboratories that can be configured as if it were a real equipment. The simulation performed by virtualbox is 100% complete.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this hypervisor to virtualize of laboratory machines for classes of courses that I offer, virtualizo pfsense, fortinet, ubuntu systems etc. to give classes on these systems, I also do it in test environment to be able to implement products in the company where I work.

"Excellent software for operating system virtualization"

What do you like best?

It seems to me an excellent application for the virtualization of the operating systems, this allows to test the complete systems and also to replicate the current systems, as well as the software tests without having to do the tests on the final software, this in the case of failures or mistakes. only the virtual machine is reinstalled and retested, without the need to format complete servers. It is also a totally free tool, with the exception of additional add-ons

What do you dislike?

I do not like that the access to the instances is complicated when being used as instalations of servers in network, at the same time you need a real machine powerful enough to support the virtual machines that you are executing, in your time you need paid complements for to be able to add features like USB 3.0 reading or disk encryption

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this software mainly for its good features, besides being a free software, easy to use and very intuitive. It is also capable of virtualizing a large number of operating systems, and it is also compatible with windows, linux and mac. Finally it is important to note that there is a very large internet community using this software, give support and help to newer users

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I help in the company to be able to install virtual test units, this favored splitting the main server and its resources in different parts, and being able to use each virtualization for a different purpose.

"Virtualize every OS with VirtualBox"

What do you like best?

I work from home as a freelancer and VirtualBox allows me to separate my work system with the OS that I have for personal use. In my work environment, that is, my virtual machines (I use more than one), I can test all the applications that I program by submitting them to different environments (Windows and Linux mainly).

The best thing about VirtualBox for me has been:

- Unlimited number of virtual machines (or as many as your HDD and RAM allow you)

- Multi platform application with support for Windows, Mac and Linux

- Support for USB rewrite (connect USB to your real machine and redigire the device to a virtual one)

- VirtualBox supports external plugins

- It supports every OS existing including old ones like MS-DOS

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that Virtualbox does not limit your RAM consumption so that many times if you are not careful you will find that your computer and virtual machines are blocked and you must restart your computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend VirtualBox if you want to run different operating systems without having to leave your host system. If you have doubts you should know that VirtualBox is totally free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to keep my personal and work environment separate since I need to install many applications to work that are useless to me in the personal environment and with VirtualBox solve this. In addition VirtualBox is a free program.

"Potente herramienta de virtualización gratis "

What do you like best?

VirtualBox es una excelente herramienta gratis y de código abierto que me permite crear maquinas virtuales donde tener distintos escenarios de simulación o pruebas. Es una ventaja que soporte casi todos los sistemas operativos existentes, ademas de poder montarlas usando RDP para el acceso remoto. El soporte a complementos externos es perfecto y como se tiene detrás una gran empresa como Oracle se garantiza el funcionamiento perfecto de la plataforma.

La interfaz y la experiencia de uso son geniales, es muy fácil asignar los recursos a cada sistema y correrlos inmediatamente.

What do you dislike?

La optimización de recursos en VirtualBox no es la mejor, hay que aceptarlo. Se requiere un buen hardware para poder correr las maquinas virtuales bien y sin latencia. De modo que se necesita hacer la inversión para este fin. De resto no tengo mas comentarios negativos sobre VirtualBox, realmente disfruto usarla y me da los resultados que quiero.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Existen muchas opciones para virtualizar maquinas actualmente, pero VirtualBox sigue siendo uno de los lideres del mercado. Recomiendo esta plataforma si necesita estabilidad y buena integración con todos sus sistemas operativos. No lo defraudara.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con VirtualBox puedo tener varios entornos de desarrollo de soluciones, ejecutar varios proyectos al mismo tiempo y hacer pruebas en una sola computadora. Como se pueden montar versiones de Linux, Unix, FreeBSD puedo hacer simulaciones con cortafuegos libres como pfSense. Otro beneficio que obtengo con VirtualBox es correr varios sistemas operativos en mi maquina.

"Virtualizing in VirtualBox"

What do you like best?

excellent tool to create virtual laboratories, is very easy to use very light and has excellent graphical interface that helps even more intuitively to generate our virtual machines as we want. I really like the diverse devices and systems that can be virtualized with this program without any kind of problem.

What do you dislike?

So far I do not have any kind of disgust with this tool, it adapts to all my expectations and I have great experiences with it, I can virtualize anything with it and put it first in virtualization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

an easy and free solution to virtualize in the simplest way is virtualbox, I recommend it totally for any environment, work or student, they make very good testing laboratories and help to make classes and / or workshops where we have to use several systems As long as good recuers are available in the host machine, there will be no problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this tool to virtualize student laboratories to give examples in my classes, as well as work tests that have been very useful before taking them to production and thus have the certainty that everything works very well. also use the tool to virtualize a pfsense and give a solution to a small company with this firewall that is virtualized in virtualbox

"Incredible tool to test operating systems"

What do you like best?

I like that virtualbox is a free and open source platform, which anyone can use to upload and create virtual machines, this allows testing operating systems within another, and make both work at the same time. In addition to having support for USB 2.0 and 3.0 connectors, but using an extension. It also allows you to create snapshots to restore the virtual machines where they were left.

What do you dislike?

I believe that it consumes large computer resources, in turn can not be used easily as an instance in the cloud to access from the network, this can be a problem for business use since sometimes always necessary to have several operational instances within it server, and that each instance manages different processes. Also virtualbox may have failures when sharing data to the host pc

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly recommend this software to all users who need to test operating systems, or require to use applications that only work in specific operating systems. It is also useful to test instances and from paid extensions you can increase the capacity of this software. It is also very useful to test programs without affecting the host operating system

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped the company to test instances before putting them on final network servers. This allows to know the real state of the instances that are going to be put to work definitively. It also has compatibility with VMware, this makes both tools together are very useful

"VirtualBox, test your software in different environments."

What do you like best?

What we like most about virtualbox is that we can test the software we develop in our business for our clients in different operating systems quickly and safely because VirtualBox perfectly emulates all operating systems (and it supports all of them).

In addition VirtualBox is a free and open source solution backed by Oracle, also offers additional plugins that add extra functionality. We need USB 3.0 devices support in one of the virtual machines and it worked perfectly.

VirtualBox also offers a multi-platform environment with support for Windows, Linux and MAC. It is also updated constantly.

Other features:

- Very mature application which makes it very stable (It has never crashed)

- It's very fast

- Free, Open source and with a large community behind that supports it

- Snapshots support

- You can share the installation with other people as it allows you to import and export the virtual machines.

What do you dislike?

There is a problem with the Linux version and it is that it requires an additional package called "Virtual Box Guest Additions" that adds features such as improved screen resolution and full screen but as I say, in linux sometimes it does not work properly and you have to Do some extra configuration. Because it is a known problem one can find help on the internet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to virtualize operating systems VirtualBox does it perfectly and also does it for free unlike its competition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a quick way to test in the software that our company develops for different operating systems and VirtualBox gives us a convenient, fast and free solution. Thanks to VirtualBox we no longer have to compile our software, copy it to USB and take it to another computer, with VB the software can be tested in the same machine in where it is developed.

"Incredibly powerfull, yet free and opensource"

What do you like best?

VirtualBox is the Go-to software, when it comes to VM creation and configuration. It's easy, lightweight, and with A TON of features. It allows you to create VMs and configure them individually or by groups, import and export VMs, take and manage snapshots, among other configurations.

It also includes support for most Virtualization technology, like Intel Hyper-V, AMD-V, etc.

What do you dislike?

The fact that the updates are too frequently. It would be better if they do like a rolling release for the bug fixes, and major release for the functionality updates. However, since it's a opensource application, it's understandable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider VirtualBox if you need a fast way to create VMs, and need to deploy them fast. Also be aware that, to get better performance, use a CPU that has proper support for virtualization, and a decent amount of RAM memory, since the guest systems are feed from the host system resources.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The need of computers with mostly low level hardware (Low core count, <2GB ram). The biggest benefit is that, with one single computer of medium specs, we where able to deploy 4 VMs with more than enough capacity for the required task.

"Everything you need to do software testing in a single workstation"

What do you like best?

What I like most is that tool is free, easy to use and functional. These characteristics is what makes software distinguish from other similar ones. I also want to highlight its functions, such as: It allows installing virtually any operating system such as Linux, Android, Mac OS X, Windows, Chrome OS, etc; unlike others in the market.

It is extremely easy to create an environment for testing of all kinds. In this way we will easily obtain a test environment completely isolated from the rest of the systems.

Virtual machines and virtualization allow to use a single service per virtualized server easily and simply. In this way, even if one of the virtualized servers is dropped, the other will continue to work. Finally, the fact of virtualizing servers or operating systems can mean significant savings in maintenance and energy consumption.

What do you dislike?

Directly on the software, I could not say that there is something that I do not like, it is quite efficient. The issue is, we must have a computer or workstation that is powerful, since, if we use 2 operating systems simultaneously we are using twice as many resources. In addition, it is also possible that sometimes operating systems and programs will run slower in virtual machines. This is because the virtual machines can not get an ideal performance of the hardware that we have in our team. The more powerful our computer is, the less you will notice the loss of performance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nice free virtual machine tool to keep my primary workstation from getting too "cluttered"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use VirtualBox almost daily to test the code that I develop. It is very useful to try your codes in a virtual environment before sending them to production, Specially if you are a linux user a need to test code on windows.

"Virtual Box. Múltiples SSOO en tu máquina aniftrión."

What do you like best?

Virtual Box es un software que después de su instalación y la habilitación opción correspondiente en la BIOS de su computador, le permitirá disfrutar de la posibilidad de tener en una máquina real varias máquinas simuladas con cualquier sistema operativo, siempre y cuando se disponga de una imagen del mismo y se instale de forma correcta.

Podríamos tener diferentes versiones de windows, linux, etc corriendo en un entrono microsoft diferente.

La ventajas de las máquinas virtuales son numerosas, entre ellas las principales son:

- Crear entornos de prueba con diferentes SSOO al original.

- Crear espacios independientes y seguros. Lo que ocurra en uno no afectará en otro.

- Ahorro de costes y ahorro energético, puesto que si quieres tener un servidor en Linux y otro en Windows, en vez de comprar dos máquinas y mantenerlas, solo debes preocuparte de la máquina original.

Además Virtual Box funciona multiplataforma y es gratuito.

What do you dislike?

Lo peor de virtual box es que requiere una fuerte inversión en hardware de alta gama si se desea que las máquinas simuladas que vamos a crear funcionen de forma eficiente, y aún así, nunca van a funcionar como reales.

Pero esto ya es otro tema, no es culpa de Virtual box, el programa es excelente.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Virtual Box es gratuito, intuitivo y con multiples opciones que harán del arte de crear máquinas virtuales toda una experiencia positiva.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilizamos Virtual Box como método de enseñanza y aprendizaje por ser gratuito y ser muy útil para hacer ver a los estudiantes como funciona un windows server con varios clientes, haciendo uso de dominios y active directory. Algo que sería completamente imposible de analizar en un entorno real y gracias a las máquinas virtuales es muy sencillo.

"Virtualize your machines"

What do you like best?

VirtualBox is the perfect tool to work on multiple operating systems from your computer. It allows you to easily install different systems without format your disk.

As good things, the integration of the virtual folders between the virtual machine and the real machine is excellent. Also the integration of the mouse between both systems is perfect.

What do you dislike?

On the other hand, the integration of USB ports don't work enough well, either the audio that normally don't works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

VirtualBox is perfect for developers who want to test their code. But also for everyone who needs an operating system different from theirs and does not want to waste time. It's really very quick to do, create the machine, load the image of the system and install the operative system normally.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically I use VirtualBox almost daily to test the code that I develop. It is very useful to try your codes in a virtual environment before sending them to production. Also I use VirtualBox when I want to try a new operative system or just a new version.

"VirtualBox is AWESOME. :-)"

What do you like best?

This VM is very easy to use, and it is very clear on how to add machines, how to do the initial setup, and you can add as many VMs as you need for what you are doing. This is very stable, as I have not had it freeze, shut down on me or have to restart the whole thing. I love how you can either save the state of the machine that it left off in, so you can continue whatever you are working on later, or you can completely shut it down as if you were shutting down the physical computer.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the sizing of the terminal can be either super large or super small. I have a 4k high definition laptop screen so I have to change my resolution or it opens VERY small and you cant read it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Utilize absolutely everything that this product has to offer! This is a great product with a lot of features that will save you a lot of money because of the lack of physical equipment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not having to have actual physical machines helps cut down on cost of equipment needed and is also a big security feature for us. When all you need is the portal on your laptop, it reduces the amount of physical information you have to keep on your laptop. Especially if its a personal laptop because my company does not issue individual laptops.

"Excellent tool to take the first steps in Virtualization, perform tests and simulate use cases. "

What do you like best?

It is very easy to install and configure.

It is very easy to use and is compatible with a variety of systems.

It is very intuitive, ideal to start in the world of virtual machines, an excellent tool for laboratories and small-scale practices.

Easy network management

Ideal to test new operating systems, specialized software, emulate possible scenarios that can occur within a controlled environment.

When creating virtual teams, it helps to reduce costs, be it in hardware acquisition, space of location (Rack or Data Center), human resources, time of implementation and adaptation.

In summary, cost reduction

What do you dislike?

When a VM or a project that requires superior processing is performed, the application may collapse, since the same in itself consumes many resources of the physical equipment.

So in order to perform a VM and that works with the minimum acceptable values you must have the host computer with a large amount of RAM

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ideal to take the first steps in virtualization, compatible with a large number of operating systems.

Excellent tool from the educational point of view.

Perfect for testing of operating system updates, beta versions, etc.

To test new operating systems or distributions, specialized software tests (Firewall, Multimedia Servers, VoIP, etc.)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to reduce the costs, since having a good server with high features, I can virtualize within it, avoiding the acquisition of new hardware, reducing the installation, configuration and start-up times, reducing costs related to the technical personnel that is required to imprentar the physical equipment, to other physical space either in a rack or a data center, which helps reduce infrastructure costs

"Virtualizar puede ser sencillo"

What do you like best?

Ideal para iniciarse acerca de las máquinas virtuales, esta herramienta permite obtener los beneficios de la virtualización. Cuando me inicie aprendí los conceptos de nube trabajando en Virtual Box y eso me ayudó a despertar mi interés en este campo. Además, es muy fácil de instalar y conservar. Una vez instalado se pueden configurar distintas máquinas virtuales cada una con sus propios recursos virtuales, partiendo como base de los recursos físicos de la máquina anfitriona. Hay que tener en cuenta que se pueden ejecutar varías máquinas a la vez e incluso trabajar conjuntamente, pero estan limitadas a la cantidad de recursos de la maquina anfitriona. La función de compartir archivos remotos es increíble.

What do you dislike?

por el momento y en el tiempo que lelvo utilizando esta herramienta, no he detectado fallos ni puntos negativos. Quizas la configuración para poder trabajar con varias máquinas virtuales conectadas es un poco compleja y lleva tiempo conseguirlo. Es algo en loque podían incorporar mejoras.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ideal para iniciarse en el mundo de la virtualización y empezar con algo pequeño. Recomendado para cualquiera con curiosidad en este mundillo .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En la organización nos ha permitido poder tener en una mis máquina física varias máquinas virtuales trabajando conjuntamente y cada una realizando una función y atentiendo distintas peticiones. Personalmente es la forma que tengo de seguir mejorando y practicando como administrador de sistemas y poder probar nuevos softwares y Sistemas Operativos sin necesidad de exponer mis datos ni la integridad de mis equipos físicos.

"Virtualize any system"

What do you like best?

With VirtualBox I have any operating system you need at any time, without having to format and install systems again.

It is compatible with almost all operating systems, and allows you to define what type of virtual machine you need, at the level of resources or features.

What do you dislike?

The only negative part is that if you run out of space on a disk it is not easy to resize it, it requires many commands and often the disk becomes unusable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With VirtualBox and an ISO image in a moment you can have a virtualized machine from any host. The integration with the host is great, including the mouse, the movement of files and even the network.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I usually use VirtualBox to test the systems before putting them into production, saving me the typical initial bugs that the new releases have.

"Excellent software to create virtual machines for free"

What do you like best?

I like that it is simple and intuitive when creating the virtual machines, it is quite complete and it works really well, you can use several operating systems at the same time without the need to restart the machine, its fast installation does not weigh much, it has a documentation pretty complete.

What do you dislike?

That does not have the predefined ISO when creating virtual machines, since not everyone has them, it would be very useful to have a repository from which they could be accessed from the software and use them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can test the operating systems that you want (Linux, Windows, Mac OS) and their versions without the need to format your machine, it is ideal for testing without harming your equipment, at the enterprise level we can save many costs since we can have virtualized servers without having large amount of irons, it is ideal for beginners and experts for its simple interface.

"All you need for virtualize your Operating System!"

What do you like best?

I think that Virtual Box t is the best tool for virtualizing operating systems! In fact, according to me, it is fast, easy to setup and with many customizations options!

It's completely free, it is immediate to use simply select the iso of the Operating System you want to virtualize, and VirtualBox will do all the rest!

What do you dislike?

I would prefere a better User Interfarce, the present one is a little Spartan and often not easy to understand (it could be better organized and better managed).

I hate the fact you need to download extra software (Guest-addition) for manage essential features like the full-screen option. On particular linux distro, Guest Additions don't work at all, and you need to bang your head a lot (with tutorial, forum, etc) to try make them work!

Recommendations to others considering the product

A tool that has now become essential for everyone, both professionals, students, and simple IT enthusiasts. The tool is free, always updated, and generally simple to use.

Highly recommended!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Virtual Box allowed us to virtualize all Operating System that we want, freeing ourselves from the weight of install them on our pc. Time is money and virtualbox has allowed us to save a lot of money. In case of problems, viruses, etc, with a couple of clicks you can go back to the previous situation without having to worry about formatting, cleaning etc.

"Virtualize any operative system"

What do you like best?

Virtual Box it's a really fast hypervisor to virtualize any operative system. Principally I use to virtualize a Windows 7 inside my desktop and laptop where I have running Ubuntu.

The virtualized operative system is totally merged with the native computer, and you can move the files from on to the other really fast. The same with the network, you can make a NAT from the native to virtualized.

What do you dislike?

Some operative systems are not fully compatible, for example with Mac OS 10.x there are some problems

Recommendations to others considering the product

VirtualBox is better than wine and other programs that virtualize the environment. VirtualBox is like a full feature Hypervisor that allows you to get working the full machine with a really good performance

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically VirtualBox gives me the possibility of have a full Windows operative system inside Ubuntu

"A simple but powerful virtualization software"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy this software. It's free, can do almost all the things that the commercial virtualization apps do, and can virtualize practically all operating systems currently on the market.

I love some features like drag and drop file between host and guest systems, the shared clipboard functionality. The start and stop of guest system is really fast too.

What do you dislike?

The gui could be improved, in general it is a bit slower than commercial alternative especially when you need to install a new guest system or need to change features like space allocated or create new partition. To take full advantage of the virtual machine features (such as full screen view) you must install the Virtual Box guest addition's: for windows it's easy, on linux the installation is difficult and often with many problems especially for beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

VirtualBox do the Job. With free license, and great flexbility for us it's the best way to create Virtual Machine. You will not feel the need for a commercial product by using Oracle VirtualBox!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have lowered costs (thanks to the complete free license) and increased flexibility thanks to virtualization. In addition we have the possibility to test the product on various real Operating System before releasing it, facilitating testing and bug fixes.

"VirtualBox is a lifesaver!"

What do you like best?

I love VirtualBox. Especially the fact that it's free. I use it with free Windows developer profiles to test programs and websites in a Windows environment, which is handy for me since I'm on a Mac. It even gets leveraged by other programs I have to create virtual WordPress environments for local development. It has saved me a lot of money from having to buy other development platforms. I'm also able to share documents back and forth very easily between the virtual environment and my computer.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can get a bit laggy, but I find that happens rarely, and if it does, I just close down some other programs that are running on my computer and it picks right back up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend VirtualBox as an easy to use program for setting up other test environments on your local machine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use VirtualBox for both local development of WordPress environments along with testing environments for other platforms.

"Virtualization for humans"

What do you like best?

Ease of use: VBox is one of the easiest, most convenient ways of converting your single-OS machine into a multi-platform workstation - may it be a Kubernetes cluster, an Oracle DB on CentOS, Office on Windows, the latest Kali Linux, or anything else you can dream of!

What do you dislike?

Lack of support for nested x64 virtualization (x64 VM running another x64 VM inside it - a rare use case, but one that I wanted badly some time back)

Recommendations to others considering the product

AFAIK it doesn't support nested 64-bit virtualization; other than that there are no shortcomings that I know of!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running Kubernetes/OpenShift clusters on single-machine infra

Running Oracle and MSSQL DBs without installing them on the native OS

Connecting to VPNs where the native OS has limited support

Running security audits on Kali Linux, without touching the host OS

Using various Windows software while running on a Linux base

"From Small Projects to Large Deployments"

What do you like best?

VirutalBox is in my development environment almost daily for when I need to set up virtual computers. I'll have one running Linux, one on Windows, one as a desktop or server or anything else I need. I can separate them into virtual environments, take snapshots of their current configuration to test things out. It is excellent for testing out development environments or training.

What do you dislike?

It's probably my own setup, but it can be slow if you're trying to run several virtual machines, so best to have a dedicated desktop just for VMs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read the manuals and people's instructions. Little things can trip you up like CPU settings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest thing I use VirtualBox for is for development and training. If I have a client with a system I'm not familiar with, I can set up what they run, test it out, play with it, and know it well enough to serve my clients. If I'm trying to figure out a difficult problem or troubleshoot a client's issues, I can set up exactly what they run, take a snapshot, and then start troubleshooting bit by bit until I find the solution.

"get your virtual machines easily and for free"

What do you like best?

Multiplatform: Can be installed in various SSOO 32 and 64 bits, such as Windows, GNU / Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris.

Multi-Guests: You can virtualize multiple SSOOs of 32 and 64 bits, such as Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP, ..., Debian, Ubuntu, OpenSuSe, ..., OS / 2, Mac OS X, DOS, Solaris, etc.

It is free software, it uses the GPLv2 license, although some components are free with PUEL license.

Portability: VB is functionally very similar in all platforms where it can be executed, for this reason MMVV can be ported between them, that is, you can create an MV in Windows and then run it in GNU / Linux. In addition, MMVV can be easily imported and exported using the Open Virtualization Format (OVF), a standard created for this purpose. You can even import in this MMVV format that were created with a different virtualization software.

Hardware-assisted virtualization is not always necessary: ​​In many scenarios, VB does not require hardware-assisted virtualization, which requires the functions added to modern hardware, called Intel VT-x for Intel microprocessors and AMD-V for microprocessors. AMD microphones. This fact allows VB to be used even in old hardware, where these features are not present. Sometimes, MMVVs try to do operations that can interfere with the proper functioning of the host machine, and avoiding this is one of the main functions of hypervisors. VB as such, in most cases only requires software-based virtualization, but sometimes, as for example in the 64-bit SSOO virtualization on x86 hardware platforms (they were not designed with virtualization in mind), to execute the operations that can affect the host, need the help of Intel VT-x or AMD-V. It should not be forgotten that in addition to selecting these features in the configuration of the MV, it is likely that for them to be used, they must also be activated in the BIOS of the host machine. (Warning: It is allowed to install more than one virtualization software on the host machine, but it is not advisable to run more than one at a time, especially when using hardware-assisted virtualization, since hypervisors can not follow what others do. hypervisors are trying to do about the host, getting, quite possibly, the blocking of the computer)

Guest additions: these are software packages that can be installed inside compatible guest systems to improve their performance and provide better communication with the host system. After installing the Guest Additions in an MV, it will improve in the following aspects:

Integration of the mouse pointer, avoiding that you have to click on the window of the MV so that the mouse is assigned to it. Simply put the mouse over the window of the MV and you will have it.

Folders shared between the host and the guest to exchange files.

Improvement of the graphic characteristics of the MV, allowing the automatic resizing of the graphical interface of the guest OS when the window size of the MV is modified.

Fluid mode of the windows. With this mode, the individual windows open on the guest's desktop are integrated with the host's open windows, giving the impression that the guest's applications are running on the host.

Automatically synchronize the time of the MV with the host team.

Share the clipboard between the host and the guest.

Snapshots: You can save arbitrary snapshots of the current state of the MV, allowing you to go back in time, restoring the MV to the frozen state by the snapshot and starting an alternative configuration of the MV from there.

What do you dislike?

A powerful computer is required to emulate a virtual machine. Technical knowledge is required to perform this task.

You can not use existing installations of other operating systems.

Sometimes it tends to be difficult to share the information of the virtual machine with the real machine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Multiplatform: Can be installed in various SSOO 32 and 64 bits, such as Windows, GNU / Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris.

Multi-Guests: You can virtualize multiple SSOOs of 32 and 64 bits, such as Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP, ..., Debian, Ubuntu, OpenSuSe, ..., OS / 2, Mac OS X, DOS, Solaris, etc.

"An excellent software to test programs and functions in servers"

What do you like best?

It seems to me an excellent software to be able to test products and updates in environments similar to the main servers, this allows us to evaluate any application before its final use, to avoid that the server can be damaged by any update. I also like that you can create a lot of virtual machines, the only limitation is hard disk space, it is also free software, although some extra applications have a separate cost

What do you dislike?

I do not like the amount of resources that it consumes, since in addition to the own resources of the virtual machine it also consumes extra resources. Functions such as mounting servers and uses of USB 3.0 are extras, do not come from the factory. It is also complicated to be able to share files from the virtual machine to the real machine, this most of all happens when the virtual machine is Linux

Recommendations to others considering the product

I totally recommend this software, it has helped me a lot, it is very useful to do a lot of testing, and in case of being damaged, the virtual machine does not affect the real machine, you just have to delete that machine and install a new.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped me to do many software tests, before I had to try live on the server, this was complicated because sometimes I had failures and the server was given and it had to be restored. But with this tool now only programs that have already been tested in virtual machines are installed.

"Review for VirtualBox"

What do you like best?

Virtual Box allows you to run several operating systems with only one computer. I am using it to run an Ubuntu virtual operating system on my Windows 10 laptop. It is very convenient to avoid having to buy a separate laptop, especially since I only use Ubuntu for a few specific tasks.

What do you dislike?

The set up is not necessarily super easy to perform. I had to go through several tutorials in order to set it up properly. The software also crashed the first time I used it but hasn't since then.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It can take some time to understand how to set it up, but just find a clear tutorial online and it should go smoothly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Virtual Box allows me to use Ubuntu on my work Windows 10 laptop without having to buy a separate computer, so it is very convenient and saved me a lot of money.

"The best tool for have Windows in Ubuntu and viceversa. "

What do you like best?

VirtualBox is a program that allows you to virtualize operating systems in an easy and very efficient way. Simply create a virtual machine with the specifications you need and install the operating system you want as if it were a normal computer. Once installed, you can use it transparently.

You have interesting options to move the files from the real machine to the virtual machine and vice versa and to share the network.

What do you dislike?

The only problem that VirtualBox has is when resizing a disk, it gives a lot of problems and is very complicated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

VirtualBox it's an essential tool to work with more than one operative system in the same computer. Also it's useful to test other OS in your computer before format and to test new things with security.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my case, with virtualbox I virtualize a Windows within my Ubuntu, to perform some office tasks and for some programs that are not compatible with ubuntu

"Excellent software"

What do you like best?

I started using Virtual Box in March 2014. There are many virtualizations solutions on the market, however, Virtual Box has one big differentiator: It is open source which means it is free to use. Surprisingly, it also has many of the features of the paid competitors. Like other paid competitors, you can do things such as drop and drag files between guest and host; set up a virtual network drive on the guest machine to access the host files; copy and paste between guest and host, suspend machine states and even save states to roll back to for future use. All of these features work very well. If you are using a Mac and have Bootcamp installed, then you can even access the Bootcamp drive which is very handy if you want to do some work in Windows without having to boot up into the full Windows system.

There is a great support community, so you can often find a good selection of tutorials and videos to help installing and setting up virtual machines.

What do you dislike?

Virtual box does have a few minor annoyances. Firstly, some of the more advance functions, such as setting up a network drive between guest and host and accessing a Bootcamp drive are a bit tricky to set up and can take a good half-hour to an hour of configuring to get up and running. It’s not too hard to do all this and you only need to set them up once, but it’s not possible to do these in one click. Another problem is that the interface is slightly ugly. This is a minor annoyance, because once you load a virtual machine, you will rarely see the interface. And the interface is very useable, so it doesn’t create any usability problems. But every time I look at it, I wish it was more pretty and less grey!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to emulate other systems and only need basic tools (such as copy and paste between guest and host) go for Virtual Box.

If you need more advanced tools (such as being able to access the Bootcamp drive on a Mac) and don’t mind spending a good half hour to set this up once, then go for Virtual Box.

If however, you need these advance tools and don’t like setting up things, then go for something like VMware Fusion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it primarily to test websites and applications on a variety of platforms. It is much faster than owning the machines separately. The ability to suspend and restart sessions is a huge time saver, as it makes it faster to test specific features of a site or application.

"Good software to deal with virtual machines"

What do you like best?

VirtualBox allows me to work with different operating systems from an Ubuntu host, so I can test codes in Windows, Mac or other Unix environments.

In addition, it allows me to work in non-native applications of ubuntu, such as office or design applications, which would otherwise not be available in ubuntu.

Finally, every time I want to try some new Unix or Windows distribution, I can do it without needing to formatting my machine and I do not waste time.

In desktop environments it is the best option, for servers or production environments, other software such as XenServer or VMware are definitely better options.

What do you dislike?

In general I am completely satisfied with the VirtualBox, perhaps the integration of the units could be improved to access the data between the host and the virtual machine

Recommendations to others considering the product

In desktop environments it is the best option, cross platform, good performance, enough updates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to test codes on all available platforms, as well as to use software from other platforms from the same host
