On a bare-metal server, after installation of (or later), the server can be used as the Oracle Linux KVM hypervisor in Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager. This would mean that the host is capable of hosting virtual machines. All the hosts in the environment should be Oracle Linux KVM hosts, except for the host running the engine that is the Oracle Linux host. The Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager can manage many Oracle Linux KVM hosts, each of which can run multiple virtual machines simultaneously. Each VM runs as individual Linux processes and threads on the Oracle Linux KVM host.
