Virtualization

pfSense supports a variety of Type-1 (bare metal/native) and Type-2 (hosted) virtualiztion environments, such as VMware (vSphere, Fusion or Workstation), Proxmox, VirtualBox, Xen, KVM, Hyper-V and so on.

Warning

We recommend using Type-1 hypervisors for production use. Type-2 hypervisors such as VirtualBox or VMware Workstation work fine for testing, but avoid using them for production roles where possible.

Set up and install is straightforward and similar to set up on a physical machine using a full installation from an ISO image.
