SmartOS is a live OS. What does it mean? SmartOS always boot from removable media and network. There is no need to use disk capacity for itself.
During virtualization revolution, physical servers replaced with virtual machines to run multiple different workloads on a single server hardware but virtual machines were still large and needs some resources to run as isolated servers. Virtual machines needs to have their own operating system and applications. Also they needs to manage and configure separately. MicroVM or Micro Virtual Machine offering benefits of two different technologies and Firecracker will help you to implementing MicroVM.
Virtual Machine needs guest operating system (OS) to operates same as physical machine. Operating system is a system software and has life cycle same as other software. But what should we do about updating and upgrading guest operating systems in virtual environments. Guest Operating System Life-Cycle Most implemented services don’t need to any new features on operating system, so we should choose guest operating system with long term support. Both Windows and Linux (Some distributions) offering different of channels. You can choose a path that more stable or choose a path for have new features. Update vs Upgrade When you...

QEMU (short for Quick Emulator) is a free and open-source emulator that performs hardware virtualization. QEMU is a hosted virtual machine monitor: it emulates the machine’s processor through dynamic binary translation and provides a set of different hardware and device models for the machine, enabling it to run a variety of guest operating systems.
All VMware guys know that guest OS needs drivers for
paravirtualized devices and the drivers provided by VMware as a package which called VMware Tools.
