Virtual Machine Interface

Virtual Machine Interface ("VMI") may refer to a communication protocol for running parallel programs on a distributed memory system.

Virtual Machine Interface is also the name given by VMware to the proposed open standard protocol that guest operating systems can use to communicate with the hypervisor of a virtual machine. An implementation of this standard was merged in the main Linux kernel version 2.6.21. A number of popular GNU/Linux distributions now ship with VMI support enabled by default.
