It is a GNU GPL2 open-source solution for virtualizing operating systems for commercial and personal use. It is powered on AMD64 or Intel 64 and x86 processors. Hosting systems compatible with VirtualBox include Mac, Windows, Linux and Solaris. It supports guest operating systems such as Windows 2000, Vista, 7, NT 4.0, XP and Server 2003, OpenSolaris and Solaris, OpenBSD, OS/2, DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux 2.6 and 2.4. The only limits to the number of virtual machines that you can operate and install are your memory and disk space. It can operate on desktops, small embedded systems, datacenters and Cloud environments.
VirtualBox is portable. In can run on 32bit and 64bit operating systems. It is a type 2 or hosted hypervisor that requires an existing system for it to be installed so it can run with other applications hosted by the main operating system, unlike type 1 or bare metal hypervisor that runs directly on your hardware. It performs similar functions for all host systems, and uses the same formats for files and images. This enables you to run virtual machines created from one host to another. You can use the OVF [open virtualization format] to export and import your virtual machines. You can also import OVFs created by other virtualization software.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files Oracle VM VirtualBox can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
