qemu-kvm: Full virtualization on supported hardware

 Using KVM, one can run multiple virtual systems, each running unmodified Linux
 or Windows images. Each virtual machine has private virtualized hardware: a
 network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc.
 .
 KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
 Linux hosts on many types of hardware. KVM is intended for systems where
 the processor has hardware support for virtualization, see below for details.
 All combinations of 32-bit and 64-bit host and guest systems are supported,
 except 64-bit guests on 32-bit hosts.
 .
 KVM requires your system to support hardware virtualization, provided by AMD's
 SVM capability or Intel's VT (for x86) or a similar hardware virtualization
 on other hardware (such as SPARC and PowerPC). See
 /usr/share/doc/qemu-kvm/README.Debian for more information.

qemu-utils: qemu utilities

 This package provides some utilities for which full qemu-kvm is not needed,
 in particular qemu-nbd and qemu-img.
