    Operating System-Level Virtualization

    More commonly called OS-level virtualization. A type of server virtualization technology which works at the OS layer. The physical server and single instance of the operating system is virtualized into multiple isolated partitions, where each partition replicates a real server. The OS kernel will run a single operating system and provide that operating system functionality to each of the partitions. Not to be confused with operating system virtualization.
