In this day and age where everyone is looking to simultaneously boost efficiency and productivity while also reducing costs, virtualization technology may be the single best way to achieve these goals. Whether you’re running a large enterprise corporation or a small- to medium-sized business, virtualization can help your organization increase IT agility, flexibility and scalability while providing significant savings.

At its core, virtualization is a pretty simple concept – it’s the process of creating a virtual, rather than physical, version of something.
