A headless computer is a computer that is operated without the traditional monitor, mouse and keyboard peripherals. Headless computers and other remotely controlled hardware devices often operate using network control models.
The use of a headless computer can be part of a remote server setup, or a system using a KVM switch in order to allow hardware devices to share peripherals. Alternately, a headless computer can be controlled through remote software using virtual terminals or emulators.
