Virtualization Types

Application virtualization

In this type of virtualization, you manage your virtualization systems from the software environment. You can run several environments on one platform. From one platform, we can manage the OS, apps, and all services required in a virtual environment. For Example VMWare and Virtual Box.

Server virtualization

Hardware Virtualization or Server Virtualization is one of the most common forms of virtualization. Hardware Virtualization is a process where it builds virtual machines by sharing the resources of a Physical Server like Storage, RAM, and CPU. Physical Server can also be known as Host. Software used in Hardware Virtualization called Hypervisor.

Data center virtualization

Data center virtualization is the process of creating a modern data center that is highly scalable, available and secure. With data center virtualization products that are software defined and highly automated, you can increase IT agility and create a seamless foundation to manage private and public cloud services alongside traditional on-premises infrastructure.

Network virtualization

In this type of virtualization, you manage your virtualization systems from the software environment. You can run several environments on one platform. From one platform, we can manage the OS, apps, and all services required in a virtual environment. For Example VMWare and Virtual Box.

Storage virtualization

Storage Virtualization separates the physical storage into a small storage network for virtualized environments. All the small storage units can be accessed from a centralized console. There are lots of benefits of Storage Virtualization like backup, archiving, and recovery of your data. You should have known of SAN (Storage Area Network). Taking Data Backup and Restoring takes a very less amount of time than SAN.
