Virtualization is a gift to the IT sector, as this one process has broken the divide of physical environment and virtual world. With help of a powerful virtualization, you can run different applications on the same server simultaneously without a hitch. This has helped organizations integrate their workstations, systems and servers to increase efficiency while reducing cost.

Sometimes business get confused since virtualization and cloud computing offers similar, if not same service. While small businesses with lesser amount of IT resources to spare can rely on cloud computing, virtualization offers greater control and security at various levels which becomes desirable for larger organizations dealing with sensitive information.

There are many aspects of virtualization, some of them being:

Application Virtualization: Application virtualization is software technology that encapsulates application software from the underlying operating system on which it is executed. It appears as if it is directly interfaced and managed by the underlying operating system but can be isolated to varying degrees as per requirements.

Desktop virtualization - It can be used in tandem with application virtualization to provide a comprehensive desktop management environment.

Server Virtualization – Server virtualization is refer to masking of server resources, including the number and identity of individual physical servers, processors, and operating systems, from the end users. The server administrator uses a virtualization tool to divide or break one physical server into multiple independent virtual servers.

Application Acceleration – Application acceleration uses multiple advanced technologies to improve as well as increase application performance and response time over network connections.

WAN Optimization – WAN optimization is a wide array of techniques for increasing data-transfer efficiencies across wide-area networks. The various techniques used for the same are De-duplication, compression, latency optimization, caching, forward error protection, protocol spoofing, traffic shaping, equalizing, connection limits and so on and so forth.
