RemoteBox – Manage VirtualBox on Servers

VirtualBox, it's virtualization software primarily intended for desktop machines, similar to VMWare Workstation, Parallels or Virtual PC. RemoteBox allows you to administer an installation of VirtualBox residing on another machine such as a server, as if it was installed locally. You can also interact with the displays of the guests. This allows you to treat VirtualBox much more like an installation of Xen, KVM or VMware ESX. A summary of some of the features of RemoteBox are listed below.
