Thumbs up Virtualization/Container Product of the Year


Hats off, again, to Oracle's Virtual Box. It is 'brain-dead-easy' to use, and install new virtual machines.

DosBox is an emulator.

DosEmu would be closer to virtualization tech.

Amen brother! And it's also rock solid. I've used both VirtualBox and Vmware and I've come to loathe Vmware.

So is QEMU. Virtualization doesn't need to include hardware virtualization.

VMware for me ... but VirtualBox is a very nice tool to have around.

Of the choices above, it's got to be Docker. Even though I think it's pretty over hyped.

Over hyped? I had never heard of it.

Favorite Virtulization Software

I've used many virtualization products including VMWare, Virtualbox, XEN, KVM, and QEMU. I prefer QEMU due to its wide range of options. QEMU works great on any Linux machine. It makes virtualization quick and easy supporting just about any OS and many networking options. SPICE allows VMs to be managed remotely. QEMU can even run guests using KVM. I can't ask for anything more.

Qemu, of course. But then I am biased as the qemu slackbuilds.org maintainer...

Why is ProxMox not on the list? It sure beats many of the others listed.

ProxMox is based on OpenVZ and KVM, which are both listed.
