What is Host and guest virtual machine: Definitions

Source: http://searchservervirtualization.techtarget.com/tip/Host-and-guest-virtual-machine-Definitions

A virtual machine (VM), typically has two components : the host and the guest.

The host is the virtual machine host server; the underlying hardware that provides computing resources, such as processing power, memory, disk and network I/O, and so on.

The guest is a completely separate and independent instance of an operating system and application software.

Guests are the virtual workloads that reside on a host virtual machine and share in that server's computing resources.

Hope it helps someone.
