5.8. Activating and connecting to KVM

KVM (abbreviation for keyboard, video, mouse, not to be confused with KVM virtualization - an abbreviation for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) provides full access to a dedicated server and transfers monitor signals and I / O devices. Thanks to this, you can work with the server as if you were physically next to it. With KVM, you can perform operations that are not possible with other methods, such as formatting a disk.
