What is Linux virtualization?
Linux virtualization is the process of operating virtual machines on a physical computer that is operated by the Linux open source operating system. Linux virtualization allows users to isolate apps, programming code or even the operating system itself. It serves well for security and performance testing purposes. Powerful computers and hardware have made virtualization more practical and feasible for both desktop and server environments, helping to save power by consolidating several workspaces on one system as well as maximizing the workload that the compute can handle.
