Description

As hypervisors continue to grow in use, I see it being important to allow the option of nested hypervisors within foreman vm creation.
The option is titled: Expose hardware assisted virtualization to the guest OS

With expanded and growing use of containers, I can see this becoming an important option.

this is becoming more and more of a request as we now have virtualization on top of virtualization everywhere.
