Virtualbox vs Hyper-V vs VMWare


New member
Straightforward. Trying to learn how to set up a RHEL cluster so I need to deploy some VMs. I've used Virtualbox a few years ago before Win 10 for some simple web dev servers, but haven't used it in a while. I know a lot of people like Hyper-V and VMware... well it's VMware. Before I spend time on this, which one is the best/least annoying to use?

Haven't really tried the hypervisors listed for your purpose, but I've used Virtualbox previously for dev servers and sandboxed testing and it's great. Plus it's free which is even better. Hyper-V... I use with Docker. Not bad either and I think Hyper-V is better performing as well. Not a huge fan of paying for VMware when Virtualbox and Hyper-V are free.
