i just trying to get into home server n see lots of tuto as much i can

but one part i dont get, what advantages of having multiple VMs on a server??

let say, i install virtualbox on my home server to run multiple OS's,

but how many ways i can access the installed OS's to make them usable? can i remote access and still have good exp? TQ

*I repost my thread here since /r/software seems no reply. I guess virtualbox or freenas being oss can be posted here hehe
1.) You use virtual machine as a sand box. With VM, you can easily reset your environment without formatting HDD.
2.) There are few ways to access the VMs remotely.
- Connect to the host machine remotely using remote access
- Use Virtual Machine client to open the virtual machine remotely
- If you are using Linux in your VM, just use SSH to connect to it.

Good exp is all depends on how much power you have, more RAM, more CPU, more bandwidth, better.
