Guest Virtual Machine (Guest VM)
Definition - What does Guest Virtual Machine (Guest VM) mean?
A guest virtual machine is implemented on the local workstation or server, and is powered entirely by the machine hosting it. A guest virtual machine runs simultaneous to the host machine. The two share hardware resources but the guest VM has a separate guest operating system, which executes on top of the host machine operating system through a hypervisor.
