What Is Virtualization?

Virtualization in the IT world is the creation of a software version of hardware compute resources like storage (hard drives), processors, memory (RAM), and main/mother boards. These software-defined resources are used with a virtualization platform that looks at this software code and puts it together to create a virtual machine (VM). This VM acts as a traditional hardware-defined workstation or server and they do not realize that they are not physical machines. As opposed to putting together these physical components to create a traditional workstation or server, we put together these software-defined hardware components and create a VM. Once this happens we can then boot to installation media and install an Operating System just the same. The interaction with is the same as a physical machine with some added benefits. Since we are abstracting the hardware layer and dynamically allocating these software-defined resources we can now pool all the physical back-end hardware into, what I would call, hardware silos or hardware resource pools.
