Virtualisation refers to the creation of virtual rather than physical devices and as such server sprawl, reliability and resource usage can be managed more effectively.
Hardware platforms, operating systems, storage devices or network resources can all be pooled across one or more devices. There are many benefits to such an approach and the technology is now widely adopted. Advantages include reduced power/cooling costs, effective usage of available computing resources along with reduced cost of ownership. As organisations process increasing volumes of business critical data, and become ever increasingly dependent on their supporting IT systems, virtualisation presents the answer to some of the inherent problems associated with such growth, without the usual costs of additional hardware and support.
