In this tutorial you will know how to create virtual machine in virtualbox.
Oracle VM VirtualBox is a hypervisor for x86 computers from Oracle Corporation. Innotek GmbH first developed the product before a Sun Microsystems acquisition in 2008. Oracle has continued development since 2010. VirtualBox may be installed on an existing host operating system; it can create and manage guest virtual machines, each with a guest operating system and its own virtual environment. Supported host operating systems include Linux, OS X, Windows XP and later, Solaris, and OpenSolaris; there are also ports to FreeBSD and Genode. Supported guest operating systems include versions and derivations of Windows, Linux, BSD, OS/2, Solaris, Haiku and others. Since release 3.2.0, VirtualBox also allows limited virtualization of OS X guests on Apple hardware, though OS x86 can also be installed using VirtualBox.
