Virtualization is the latest technology taking IT departments by storm, it is an approach that can be applied to many aspects of IT infrastructure and can save enterprises a lot of money.

Briefly put, virtualization can mean the following things:

1.    The technique of managing and presenting storage devices and resources functionally, regardless of their physical layout or location.

2.    In storage, virtualization is a means by which multiple physical storage devices are viewed as a single logical unit

Virtualization can be applied to software as well as physical resources such as servers and storage. In server virtualization it is possible to scale up and down resources with demand by adding unused space from existing computers to the virtual server. For storage it can enable business to utilize all available space on all hard disks by representing them as a single storage device. This enables IT managers to utilize the maximum capacity of their infrastructure, by reducing the unused capacity CIO’s can save money on extra hardware and exercise a great degree of control over resource allocation.

An added benefit of virtualization is actual physical space saved. Large organizations with multiple massive servers need rooms specially designed to rooms to house and keep the servers cool. Virtualization actually reduces the space and cooling costs.
