In the world of IT systems, the term ‘virtualization’ refers to the capacity to abstract a system’s resources by means of a software layer. This way, we have a device or resources virtually, regardless of the hardware that supports it.
The virtualization of systems can occur on a device or resource, a coplete server, a storage device, a network, or even an operating system, where the resource is divided into one or more different running environments.
The idea to virtualize systems comes from the great evolution undergone by IT systems. Nowadays we can purchase powerful systems at reasonable prices. This way, we may have unused resources that can be utilized thanks to virtualization.
