Question

Are there any free online virtual machines?

Hello Guys, I need virtual machines to try out an operating system or create a virtual disk image of my hard drive or could go also further including creating an entire database server in the cloud.

One of my friends suggests me to take virtual machine trial from go4hosting.

Please suggest me the best one.

Answer
While I too use VirtualBox

I worry that you haven't thought it through about your endeavor. Not only will it take weeks for most to upload their drive image but many disk image of your hard drive may not work in some VMs. You have to test that before you try that.

Then you ask for it to be free. No. You are asking for maybe 100+GB free online storage and their platform for the VM. That's asking too much to be free. Get back to reality fast. Just use free VMs like VirtualBox to learn about all this.

Answer
VMware Workstation

VMware Workstation is a good platform that you can download for free. However, you may likely require a license key you may have to purchase to be able to use it.
