In the course of virtualization, software-based (virtual) versions of physical components are created. These can be operating systems, servers, storage devices or other components. Advantages such as cost savings, better workload mobility and higher resource performance and availability can be realized.
- Server virtualization: running multiple operating systems on one physical server
- Network virtualization: fully replicate physical networks in virtual networks
- Desktop virtualization : this allows users to access their familiar desktop working environment remotely
