Executive Summary

Virtualization is a technical innovation designed to increase the level of system abstraction and enable IT users to harness ever-increasing levels of computer performance. At its simplest level, virtualization allows one, virtually and cost-effectively, to have two or more virtual computing environments, running different operating systems and applications on one piece of hardware. For example, with virtualization, one can have both a Linux virtual machine and a Microsoft Windows virtual machine on one system. Alternatively, one could host a Microsoft Windows 95 desktop and a Microsoft Windows XP desktop on one workstation.
