VirtualBox is a cross-platform open source virtualization tool available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X or other operating systems,
which allows you to create virtual disk drives where you can install a guest operating system within the one we normally use on our computer so you can use it in the same way as if it had actually been installed.
The virtual machine on which the virtualized system will run is completely customizable,
allowing you to modify the virtual hardware at your whim according to your needs,
be it the type of processor, the dedicated RAM or the storage space to which you can turn.
Keep in mind that all these resources will be a part of the real specifications of our team,
so we need to have a powerful enough equipment to run and interact with the guest and host operating systems.
The program supports virtually all versions of the most current operating systems such as Windows 10, Mac OS X Yosemite or the most updated editions of Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution.
The advantages of virtualization are several, being the most obvious the possibility that we are offered to use exclusive programs from one platform in another, not to mention the modularity of the units created, that we can take anywhere and make backup copies from the same.
In fact, an interesting functionality of VirtualBox is the possibility of creating instances of the virtualized operating system to start it exactly at the point where we leave the session.
