Storage Virtualization Here, various storage devices are grouped into a single large virtualized storage unit, which is controlled from a central console. Server Virtualization: This involves the masking of servers so as to limit the server users from accessing server’s complex information, such as physical address, among others, while also ensuring the resource sharing. The software that is used to virtualize the underlying hardware is ‘hypervisor’
Data Virtualization Here the broader data access is provided to meet the business requirements, while abstracting the very important basic information like storage location, performance, and format. Desktop Virtualization Here the main intention is to share the workstation. Instead of server, the workstation load is shared via virtualization, in the name of remote desktop access. As the workstation works in data centre server environment, security and portability are also ensured.
