Virtualization is very relevant to build our cloud computing strategy it the process of creating a software-based or virtual version of something whether that computes storage networking servers or applications. Virtualization is a technology that runs multiple operating systems that are completely isolated from each other. Back in the old days, we install the operating system directly to the hardware now it gives you a layer we called hypervisor where we can install the operating system on the hypervisor. One of the advantages of having a hypervisor is that you can put multiple operating systems in one physical server. It is also easier for the administrator to handle the server when the physical server has major/minor problems it has a feature we called migration where you can transfer/move the entire server to the other server with the same hypervisor as easy as like you were transferring files and documents.
