Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)

What is a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)

Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) is a software application or component that is used to create, configure, and manage virtual machines (VMs). VMs are simulated computer environments that run on top of a physical host machine and are used to run multiple operating systems and applications concurrently on a single physical machine.

VMM is responsible for allocating resources such as processing power, memory, and storage to the VMs and ensuring that they have the necessary resources to run efficiently. It also allows administrators to create, modify, and delete VMs as needed, and to monitor the performance and status of VMs.

VMM can be used to create VMs for a variety of purposes, including testing, development, and production environments. It is often used in data centers and cloud computing environments to improve resource utilization and reduce costs by allowing multiple applications to share the same physical infrastructure.

Some examples of VMM software include VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Oracle VirtualBox.
