Assignment 3: Virtualization Across the Board

Virtualization is generally defined as the creation of a virtual version of a computer object. The computer objects may be hardware objects such as virtual machines (VMs), virtual storage disks (vdisks), or network resources such as virtual networks, virtual Central Processing Units (CPUs or VCPUs), virtual keyboards, virtual mice, and so on. The computer objects may also be software objects such as virtual operating systems (VOS), virtual desktops interfaces (VDIs), virtual memory (VMEM), virtual device drivers (VDDs), and so on. The virtualization market has seen tremendous growth as businesses embark on strategies to virtualize hardware and / or software. Companies such as VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix have invested heavily in virtualization-based solutions for these businesses.
