File extensions used for virtual machines, virtual machine disk drives and other important configuration and setting files used by virtualization software.

This category of file types contains various files used by virtualization software, including their main data files, configuration, settings, disk images, logs, temporary or cache files.

Virtual machine is a software emulated computer system with virtualized hardware components (processor, video card, memory, storage etc.), which like a physical machine, runs an operating system and it's apps. Emulated hardware devices provide the same functionality as physical hardware.

A typical virtual machine is comprised of several types of files, that contains configuration files (VMX, VMXF, PVI, VBOX), virtual storage files (VMDK, HDD, VDI) and other like virtual machine snapshots, swap files, logs.

Virtualization is useful for running different operating systems on one physical computer machine. This is used to run suspicious apps, testing uhuthorized system settings, to emulate old operating systems and run old apps, or virtualizing different hardware architectures. Other benefits of virtualized system are portability, manageability, and security.

Two major classifications of virtual machine exists:

  • A system virtual machine - a complete emulated platform with entire operating system (VMware Workstation, Parallels Desktop, VirtualBox).
  • A process virtual machine - used to run and emulate environment for a one app in operating system (Microsoft .NET, JAVA runtime environments).
