Virtualization is changing landscape of IT. Virtualization is a green technology that is rapidly growing in both acceptance and importance. A benefit of virtualization that often goes unnoticed is green IT. IT is essentially software that sits under the Operating System ("OS") and allows physical servers or desktop systems to become 'Virtual' equipment. A further benefit of server virtualization in particular is the saving of approximately 7000kWh of electricity annually (equating to around $700 per year) which eventually affects the environment positively as electricity is less used.
