How to open file with OVA extension?

OVA file description

This is a file extension that contains the info about the Virtual machine. These are normally the package files that have the description of the Virtual machine and the certification as well. They can even have the Virtual Application files stored in them. Other than that, those files are the data files used by the virtual machines and that is why, they are known to be as the Open Virtual Applications. But those data files are not the all-important data that will run the virtual machine. Rather they are just the information stored for the Virtual Machine to use in future.
