What to Look for in VirtualBox 5.0
The world of Type 2 virtualization has not stopped advancing just because Type 1 has gotten to be so popular nor has Oracle stopped developing VirtualBox. The beta release of VBox 5 is available and there are some hot new features justifying the leap in version.
New features to look for:
- Paravirtualization for both Linux and Windows guests <-- this is the big one
- Encrypted drive images
- Hot Plug SATA Support
- Multiple USB devices
PV support is really huge. Speed, time keeping and stability. This could potentially help a lot.
