Home / FAQs / What is virtual machine/computer?

A ‘virtual machine’ is essentially a simulated or software-only computer that acts and functions exactly like the computer you’re using right now, only there’s no hardware. No screen, no keys, no hard drive, no cables. Think of it as a virtual computer. It’s simply a software-only representation of a computer. You can learn more about it in How it works section.
