“Quick look at what nested virtualization is and where you may use it.”

Nested virtualization is a technology that allows you to run a virtual machine (VM) inside of another. It is used to emulate multiple hardware environments within a single physical machine.

Nested virtualization helps to create a virtualized environment that is more flexible and efficient than traditional virtualization. It can be used to test a variety of different hardware configurations, or to create a secure sandbox environment. Nested virtualization also allows for the creation of multiple virtual machines with different operating systems on a single physical machine. This allows for a greater degree of flexibility and scalability for businesses that use virtualization to run their applications.
