Virtualization is an abstract term. Many people have heard about it, but how many know what virtualization is all about? In fact, virtualization has been around since the 1950s in the sense of time sharing on mainframe computers. However, virtualization has become a new concept that has sprung from its 1950s beginnings.
Virtualization allows companies to get more done in less time with quality and efficiency. It gives companies competitive advantages and helps keep things separate and simple.
