Suggestion for VM software for M1 Mac

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/devops

Our great sponsors
  • Sonar - Write Clean C++ Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • lima

    Linux virtual machines, typically on macOS, for running containerd

    I would recommend lima0 instead of UTM if you are not going to work with GUI staff, it's basically a QEMU wrapper like UTM, but more lightweight.

  • multipass

    Multipass orchestrates virtual Ubuntu instances

    If you limit yourself to Ubuntu multipass should work well enough. In a more generic way, UTM should give you a broader selection of VMs.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean C++ Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean C++ code every time. With over 550 unique rules to find C++ bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.
