What are virtual machine additions and integration components?

Just about every virtualization application offers some kind of “additions” or “integration components” that you install inside your virtual machine guests. These additions are usually device drivers that increase VM performance, enable features, or make the VMs easier to manage. With VMware products, these drivers are called the “Virtual Machine Additions”. With Microsoft Hyper-V, these drivers are called “integration components”.
