Is My Linux Server Physical or Virtual?

Supposing you are in a server shell and don’t know if you machine is virtualized (a VM)?
One way to check that (supposing VMWare as hypervisioning solution) is:

[root@mydbsrvr ~]# dmidecode | grep -i vmware
Manufacturer: VMware, Inc.
Product Name: VMware Virtual Platform
Serial Number: VMware-xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx-xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx
Description: VMware SVGA II

If you had an answer like this, yes, it’s a VM. 🙂
