2 Virtual machines
Anthony Wang edited this page 7 months ago

We offer high-performance virtual machines (VMs) with the QEMU/KVM hypervisor. For a more lightweight alternative to a full-blown virtual machine, see containers.


The easiest way to get started is to open up the Virtual Machine Manager app in exodesk. The default connection requires root permissions to connect to, so you can close any password prompts and delete that connection. Now click on File > Add Connection and select the QEMU/KVM user session hypervisor. You're ready to start creating VMs!

Alternatively, you can use the graphical web interface in exoportal.


You can create a new VM by clicking on the icon in the top left corner of the Virtual Machine Manager app. You will also need an ISO disk image for the OS that you would like to install. The app will guide you through configuring the VM and once it boots up, follow the installation instructions for your ISO's OS. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to finish. Enjoy your new VM!
