VirtualBox - Cross-Platform Virtualization Application

  •    C

VirtualBox is a powerful x86 and AMD64/Intel64 virtualization product for enterprise as well as home use. VirtualBox runs on Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and Solaris hosts and supports a large number of guest operating systems. So, for example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac. VirtualBox is a so-called hosted hypervisor. It requires an existing operating system to be installed. It can thus run alongside existing applications on that host.

Xen - Open Source Virtualization

  •    c

The Xen hypervisor is a layer of software running directly on computer hardware replacing the operating system thereby allowing the computer hardware to run multiple guest operating systems concurrently. It suppors x86, x86-64, Itanium, Power PC, and ARM processors allow the Xen hypervisor to run on a wide variety of computing devices.

kernel virtual machine

  •    C

KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V). It consists of a loadable kernel module, kvm.ko, that provides the core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module, kvm-intel.ko or kvm-amd.ko. Using KVM, one can run multiple virtual machines running unmodified Linux or Windows images. Each virtual machine has private virtualized hardware: a network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc.

Libvirt - The virtualization API

  •    C

Libvirt is collection of software that provides a convenient way to manage virtual machines and other virtualization functionality, such as storage and network interface management. These software pieces include an API library, a daemon (libvirtd), and a command line utility (virsh). It provides a single way to manage multiple different virtualization providers/hypervisors like Xen, OpenVZ, VirualBox, Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor, VMware.

QEMU - Machine Emulator and Virtualizer

  •    C

QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer. When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC). By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performance.

XCP-ng - A turnkey open source virtualization platform

  •    C

XCP-ng is a virtualization platform based on Xen Source and Citrix® Hypervisor (formerly XenServer). XCP-ng stands for Xen Cloud Platform - New Generation and is a tribute to the old Open Source project XCP, which was abandoned when XenServer was open-sourced in 2013.

hvpp - hvpp is a lightweight Intel x64/VT-x hypervisor written in C++ focused primarily on virtualization of already running operating system

  •    C++

hvpp is a lightweight Intel x64/VT-x hypervisor written in C++ focused primarily on virtualization of already running operating system. Although several open-source research hypervisors aimed at simplicity already exist, in my opinion this field is still somewhat unexplored and needs more open-source projects. This can especially help those who have just started exploring virtualization technologies and are looking for small/reference projects. If you're one of them, my bets are that you're really disappointed right now, because all you've got are barely dozen of (great!) projects and huge pile of Intel Manual pages.
