QEMU is a processor virtualization and emulation software solution which offers support for different hardware peripherals and devices, and relies on dynamic binary translation to give high emulation speed. The user can launch processes designed for a specific CPU in user mode and whole simulate system with one or more processors. You can launch various operating systems on a host machine with the full platform virtualization, while the level virtualization mode comes in handy for debugging endeavors and cross-compilation. There are wide range of hardware devices including PowerPC processors, PCs with 32-bit or 64-bit architectures, MIPS Magnum, Malta Boards, Sparc processors, ARM Integrators and baseboards, MicroBlaze, MusicPal devices, and so on. It is possible to connect the created VLANs through multiple program instances, view the state of the virtual machine, and restore or save its state from a disk file. Additionally, this application offers support for multiple disk image formats and enables you send different complex commands to the emulator. QEMU is an open-source machine emulator that is capable of directly accessing host devices.
