VirtualBox is proprietary software. While Oracle seems has some shady version for FreeBSD which sucked for me personally officially listed platforms are listed on Oracle web site. Using VirtualBox for anything but educational purpose outside of Red Hat Linux is crazy IMHO.


NetBSD has XEN dom0 as the official virtualization. I have not played with it but if it works as advertised (most things in my experience don't on NetBSD) that would be certainly a serious option for production deployment.

Sorry Philippe but you are on your own on that one. We use only KVM on Red Hat hosts and FreeBSD jails in my Lab. We had Virtual Box instances int the past which I retired. That is why I was so familiar with that Virtual Box.
Xen has pretty good documentation IIRC. It NetBSD dom0 and Debian dom0 should not be very different.

On non Linux platform? You are joking right? QEMU is KVM without hardware/kernel acceleration. That is a Linux only technology for production deployment (QEMU works even on OpenBSD for educational purposes).


In BSD world there are FeeBSD jails, NetBSD Xen dom0, Virtual Box on FreeBSD and behyve in FreeBSD 11.00 and later. Of course you can use QEMU on any of BSDs except possibly DragonFly but that is a toy. For general purpose visualization Linux is just way ahead of BSDs. For some special purposes like running FeeBSD jails on the top of ZFS and using snapshots for hot migration Linux is light years behind FreeBSD.
