This paper explores the concept of Server virtualization technology that offers enormous possibilities for autonomic management of datacenter which runs a heterogonous mix of workloads through the availability of new automation mechanisms that can be exploited to control and monitor tasks running within virtual machines. The stress given on the fact to determine the extent to which a virtualization system limits the impact of a misbehaving virtual machine on other well-behaving virtual machines running on the same physical machine. Server virtualization consolidates the operations of many dispersed servers onto fewer physical machines Virtualization software decouples a server's operating system from its physical hardware to create a "Virtual machine".
