A Virtual Machine (VM) in cloud computing is an emulation of a computer system. It runs on a physical computer but behaves like a separate computer system, allowing you to run applications and perform tasks as if you were working on a separate computer.
A VM works by using software to simulate a physical computer. This software, known as a hypervisor, separates the VMs from the host and allocates resources to each VM as needed.
A software development company, DevSoft, uses VMs to create separate development environments for each of their projects. This allows developers to work on different projects without interfering with each other's work.
A virtual server in the cloud that emulates computer hardware and allows you to create, configure, and customize to suit your computing needs.
The abstraction of physical computing resources from the software that uses those resources.
