A host operating system can host a number of guest operating systems. There is one host o/s on a machine and one or more guest o/s. A guest o/s gives the user the impression that it is a separate physical machine. A user will log into a guest system and be unaware that the machine is virtual and that there may be other virtual machines on the physical machine.

Difference between guest and host operating system?

A guest operating system is considered a third party application. This is when users are allowed to work within an operating system that is shared on a public or private platform. A host operating system is one that a primary user owns or runs. He or she can also turn their operating system into a shared application if desired.


What is the relationship between a guest operating system and a host operating system in a system like VMware what factors need to be considered in choosing the host operating system?

A host operating system is the operating system that is in direct communication with the hardware. It has direct hardware access to kernel mode and all of the devices on the physical machine. The guest operating system runs on top of a virtualization layer and all of the physical devices are virtualized. A host operating system should be as modular and thin as possible to allow the virtualization of the hardware to be as close to the physical hardware as possible, and so that dependencies that exist in the host operating don't restrict operation in the guest operating system.


What is a Guest Operating System?

A Guest operating system is one that runs on top of another, similar to a program. Guest operating systems are usually run in a "virtual machine", which does not interact directly with the real hardware of the computer.

How do you determine the minimum amount of RAM required?

You should refer to the product documentation included with each operating system to determine the minimum system requirements for the guest operating system. Be aware that the minimum required disk space you need is the sum of the required disk space of each guest operating system and the host operating system, in addition to disk space for any applications to be installed on the operating systems.

When you use Sun VirtualBox does the operating system use your real RAM or something else?

VirtualBox runs the operating system just like an application on your host operating system. When you give your guest operating system 512 MB of RAM, it appears as though a program is using 512 MB of RAM on your host. For this reason, you can never specify more RAM than you actually have installed, and for stability reasons, you should never specify more than half of your RAM for the guest.

What is the relationship between guest operating system and host operating system?

These terms are typically only applied in cases where a virtual machine is in use (a computer program that emulates a physical computer), popular examples include VMware, VirtualBox and user-mode Linux. In this case the "host" operating system is running on the physical computer and the "guest" operating system is running in the emulation software. For example I have a workstation running Debian Linux as a host operating system. When I want to compile a program for several versions of windows I can launch several instances of VirtualBox to bring up virtual machines running Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 in both 32 and 64 bit versions as guest operating systems. This lets me easily compile the program with optimizations for each of these operating systems using a single workstation and without rebooting. Virtual machines are also common in web hosting. There are a number of hosting service providers who's business model consists entirely of selling access to user-mode Linux virtual machines. In this case the Linux guest operating system is actually running in a virtual machine under a Linux host operating system, the benefit of using virtual machines is that each customer may be given complete control over their virtual server, while the hosting company can run hundreds or even thousands of virtual servers from a handful of physical computer systems.
