Oracle VM VirtualBox is a free and open-source hosted hypervisor for x86 virtualization, developed by Oracle Corporation. Created by Innotek GmbH, it was acquired by Sun Microsystems in 2008, which was, in turn, acquired by Oracle in 2010. VirtualBox may be installed on Windows, macOS, Linux, Solaris and OpenSolaris.

This is the amount of host memory (RAM) that VirtualBox assigns to the virtual machine when it runs.

Oracle VM VirtualBox supports the following types of disk image files:
VDI. Normally, Oracle VM VirtualBox uses its own container format for guest hard disks. This is called a Virtual
Disk Image (VDI) file. This format is used when you create a new virtual machine with a new disk.
VMDK. Oracle VM VirtualBox also fully supports the popular and open VMDK container format that is used by
many other virtualization products, such as VMware.
VHD. Oracle VM VirtualBox also fully supports the VHD format used by Microsoft.
