    I doubt that docker will be useful to you. For embedded you might want to check out QEMU.

    No, unless you use something like SEV to encrypt the VM's memory.

    You will need a hypervisor program like Virtualbox or QEMU to run virtual machines and manage different volumes and networking setups.

  • My preferred emulators, all loaded through altstore for a jailed device
    reddit.com/r/AltStore | 2021-08-14
    -UTM (actually, UTM SE, which is the altjit version for jailed devices), based in Qemu: Lots of CPUs but most importantly x86 emulation, including support for Windows up to 10 (IPA, use UTM SE. use the AltStore Repo)
  • Virtualization in M1
    You could run x86 OSes using QEMU but that uses emulation and depending on what your doing could be a performance issue. A good frontend for QEMU is UTM: https://mac.getutm.app.

  • Free windows virtualization on M1 Apple Silicon
    reddit.com/r/mac | 2021-07-27
    I've been searching a lot about this topic, on how to virtualize windows on the new M1 Apple Silicon chips for free. I saw that Virtual Box is not available at the moment, and the only working option is to use Parallels, which is paid. First I found QEMU, but I found it too difficult to use. Eventually I came across UTM, which is based on QEMU, but seems promising.
