Partial Virtualization

When entire operating systems cannot run in the virtual machine, but some or many applications can, it is known as Partial Virtualization. Basically, it partially simulates the physical hardware of a system.

This type of virtualization is far easier to execute than full virtualization. This is very successful when computer resources are shared among-st multiple users.

Situations that need backward compatibility or portability require full virtualization. Here partial virtualization falls woefully short. This is because it is difficult to anticipate which features have been used by a particular application.

Partial virtualization was used in the first-generation, time sharing system, the CTSS. This was a historical milestone since it paved the way to full virtualization.

Address space virtualization is a key form of partial virtualization. Here, each virtual machine consists of an independent address space. This needs address relocation hardware, and is present in the most practical examples of partial virtualization. 

Running the whole operating system in the virtual machine can be difficult for a few applications thus the process of partial virtualization opts. It is one of those types of virtualization that is easier to execute. Moreover, it is highly successful when computer resources are shared among other website users.
