What is Guest Virtual Machine?
A guest virtual machine (guest VM) refers to a virtual machine that is installed, running, and hosted on the local physical machine.
A guest virtual machine is implemented on the local workstation or server and is fully powered by the computer that is hosting it. A guest virtual machine runs at the same time as the host computer. The two share hardware resources, but the guest VM has a separate guest operating system that runs on the host computer operating system through a hypervisor.
A guest virtual machine has the same functionality as a physical or hosted virtual machine with its own operating system, installed applications, processes, input / output requests, and other related services. These services are provided by the computer on which the guest VM is hosted, which makes the VM for your entire business is completely dependent on the host machine. The guest VM can get its resources from several different physical computers at the same time to meet the performance requirements.
