Hosted virtual desktop (HVD)

A hosted virtual desktop (HVD) is a desktop environment that is hosted on a remote server. The user accesses the desktop environment via a client device, such as a laptop, desktop, or mobile device. The client device connects to the remote server over a network, such as the Internet. The desktop environment on the remote … Read more

Virtual CPU (vCPU)

A virtual CPU (vCPU) is a CPU that is simulated by software. This can be done either by emulating a real CPU or by creating a new virtual CPU that runs on top of a real CPU. vCPUs are often used in virtualization environments, where multiple virtual machines (VMs) can share a physical CPU. This … Read more

Nettops are often used to provide basic network services, such as file sharing or print services, and are often used in place of more expensive and power-hungry desktop computers. Nettops are also sometimes used … Read more

Kernel virtualization

Kernel virtualization is a technique for running multiple virtual machines on a single physical server. Each virtual machine has its own kernel, which is isolated from the kernels of other virtual machines. This allows each virtual machine to run its own operating system and applications, without affecting the other virtual machines on the same server. … Read more


The term “agnostic” is used in a variety of contexts, but in the context of virtualization, it refers to the ability of a virtualization platform to run on a variety of hardware and software platforms. This means that the virtualization platform is not tied to any particular hardware or software platform, and can therefore be … Read more

Virtual reality

Virtual reality (VR) is an immersive, simulated experience that can be created using computer technology. VR simulations can provide a realistic, three-dimensional (3D) view of an environment or situation, allowing users to explore and interact with the world in a completely immersive way. VR technology can be used for a variety of purposes, including training, … Read more

KVM hypervisor

The KVM hypervisor is a type of virtualization software that allows a single physical server to run multiple virtual machines. KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine, and is included in the mainline Linux kernel since version 2.6.20. KVM is similar to other hypervisors like VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V in that it allows multiple … Read more
