Question

Is it stupid to install hypervisor on the droplet?

What’s in my mind: There are plenty of .ISO files of different OS-es which are used for studies. With the help of awesome Guacamole server (gateway for connecting any browser and any virtual machine) I want to give access for other students to these OS-es. The problem is - I don’t have any server to host these virtual machines. So bought DigitalOcean droplet and want to install some hypervisor. But haven’t found any tutorials of that. It put an thought that it is kind of stupid to deploy hypervisor inside another hypervisor (which DigitalOcean is). Can anybody give any idea of how to implement this?

P.S.: sorry if I am so dumb -___-

While possible to run a nested hypervisor (simply installing VirtualBox would work) it’s not recommended. Running a hypervisor within a virtual server will result in extremely poor performance.
