What’s behind the Virtual Machines?

Are Virtual machines making our world more virtual?

These days virtual machines are running everywhere on the internet, from Microservices to big modules of code running on these virtual machines. We might not know the difference between an application running on a single server or multiple parts running of the same application running on multiple instances of virtual machines, that is the best part about virtual machines. We might not get the difference, but they will make us get the most of our hardware resources.
Virtual machine is hardware-level virtualization, a VM provides a real computer emulation and is implemented using software emulation programs. The end-user gets the same experience as an operating system hosted on physical hardware with a virtual machine running on a machine. Virtual machines use the hardware more efficiently and increase productivity than a single OS running on dedicated hardware. Multiple VM running on the same hardware can perform different jobs at the same time can effectively improve resource utilization.
