    Cool Welcome to the New openSUSE Virtualization Forum!

    Welcome to the New openSUSE Virtualization Forum! This forum was created to provide a place where problems and solutions to using Virtual Machine software can be exchanged between our many openSUSE users. We in particular are interested in providing assistance in setting up a VM in a openSUSE host computer or the running of openSUSE as a guest as a VM. While there are many VM products out there, lets look at those that can be freely installed into openSUSE which include but are not limited to:

    According to the Wiki on the subject, here is the definition of Virtualization:


    Virtualization, in computing, is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as a hardware platform, operating system, a storage device or network resources.Virtualization can be viewed as part of an overall trend in enterprise IT that includes autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on perceived activity, and utility computing, in which computer processing power is seen as a utility that clients can pay for only as needed. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and work loads.

    If you have an issue with any VM while using openSUSE, please, we want to hear about your problem. If you are a VM user, we ask that you drop by this forum and provide all the help that you can. Include lots of suggestions and it OK to mention what VM you are using. If you want other VM's added to this welcome, just let me know what and why.

    This is YOUR forum to help YOU in using a VM with openSUSE.

    Thank You,
