Abstract Cloud computing has simply means Internet Computing. The Internet is commonly visualized as clouds. Hence the term cloud computing for computation done through the Internet. With Cloud computing users can access database resources via the Internet from anywhere. Cloud computing provides the facility to access shared resources and common infrastructure, offering services on demand over the network to perform operations that meet changing business needs. The virtualization of IT infrastructure enables the consolidation and pooling of IT resources so that they can be shared over diverse applications. With the help of virtualization logical abstraction of physical resource is possible which is very lucrative for the IT business. Thus we can save the capital of IT business. Virtualization is very important for cloud computing because the delivery of services is simplified by providing a platform, infrastructure and services for optimizing complex IT resources in a feasible manner, which makes cloud computing more cost effective. This paper presents Performance Analysis of Various Guest Operating Systems on Ubuntu 14.04.Various Guest OS performance on Ubuntu cloud of different virtual machine of Ubuntu and WinXP’s performance in the CPU Time, Memory usage, and percent CPU usage in the KVM hypervisor virtualization. Our comparison was carried using Libvirt tool kit commands result and sysbench benchmark tool. Our goals are that how the different virtual machine of single host affects the performance and make informed decision about choice of best virtual machine indication to the cloud guest OS on Ubuntu.
