What Is a Virtual Machine? and How Does It Work?

A virtual machine is a software program or an emulation of a computer system that can run multiple operating systems and applications on a single physical machine. It offers a way to create a dedicated environment that can run various operating systems without affecting the host system. Virtual machines simulate computing environments, allowing users to run operating systems, applications, and software that may not be natively supported by their operating system. They also provide a way for users to test new software, applications, and configurations without risking damage to their computer or underlying operating system. Virtual machines are widely used in server consolidation, desktop virtualization, software testing and development, running legacy applications, and cybersecurity. They can be installed on various platforms including desktop computers, servers, and cloud computing platforms.
