The Emacs text editor can be extended with a plethora of packages. One of these packages is PDF Tools which allows PDF files to be rendered and viewed from an Emacs buffer.

Proxmox Virtual Environment allows you to run virtual machines in all shapes and forms. It features its own web-based user interface to manage VMs and the resources they use. These include ISOs, which can be uploaded so that they can be used with a VM.

scp to directly copy and
ssh to otherwise manage your ISOs.
