Virtualization is the aggregation of physical resources into a unified structure ("Pool"), and the presentation of those resources as capabilities that can be consumed by applications or other types of storage clients. The term "Virtualization" has really become an umbrella that encompasses a vast array of encapsulation and management technologies and implementation methods. These approaches create pools of sharable resources that enhance utilization and, ultimately, can automatically allocate the resources to match supply to demand.
