Oracle VirtualBox ships with six front ends for sysadmins and sysmans to chose from !
- VirtualBox – the Qt GUI front end implementing the manager and running VirtualBox VMs.
- VBoxManage – a less user-friendly but more powerful alternative.
- VBoxSDL – a simple graphical front end based on the SDL library.
- VBoxHeadless – a VM front end which does not directly provide any video output and keyboard/mouse input, but allows redirection via VirtualBox Remote Desktop Extension.
- vboxwebsrv – the VirtualBox web service process which allows for controlling a VirtualBox host remotely.
- VirtualBox Python shell – a Python alternative to VBoxManage.
That allows you create server hardware whose only purpose is to host VMs which run remotely over VRDP and so you dont need to have a graphical user interface on the server at all.
VBoxHeadless has no dependencies on the X Window system on Linux and Solaris hosts.
