What's Inside...

Virtualization has been changing the business IT landscape since the first hypervisor solution debuted in 1999. At its core, the technology allows for the creation of software-defined virtual machines that act as discrete hardware assets – servers, storage arrays, desktops, networking devices, etc. – but exist only as guest instances decoupled from the host infrastructure.

In its early days, virtualization was adopted by large enterprises and data center operators taking advantage of its ability to add capacity and scale without physical components or the power and cooling costs those hardware assets require. Virtualization made it possible to dynamically and granularly pool and reallocate infrastructure resources, thus it served as a key driver of what would be known as cloud computing. Thanks to virtualization, data-center providers could pack large numbers of virtual machines into multi-tenant hosted environments, allowing clients to share a single server at costs far below those of traditional, dedicated hardware infrastructure configurations.

While SMBs were slower to jump on the virtualization bandwagon because of the substantial upfront investment, its evolution to include reduced costs, improved reliability and proliferation of desirable virtualization dependent cloud services has fueled tremendous growth in the space over the past three years.
