Linux Virtual Machines for use with BOINC

Linux Virtual Machines (VMs) are useful for several purposes in BOINC:

  • Running a BOINC server in a VM. Use a BOINC virtual server VM for this.
  • Compiling applications so that they will run on older Linux versions. Use a compatibility VM for this.
  • Applications that run in a VM on the client. This is an object of research and is being discussed on this page: VmApps
