The terms “cloud” and “virtualization” are popular buzzwords in the IT industry; however, you may not know what they mean or if they provide any kind of value to your business.
In short, virtualization is the process of creating virtual versions of infrastructure resources, such as a server, operating system, or storage device vs. creating the actual physical version of it.
A cloud, although built on top of a virtual infrastructure, refers to shared computing resources, software or applications that are delivered through the internet.
Neither the cloud nor virtualization is right for everyone, but they are options to be considered if your organization is looking improve the efficiency, availability & performance of your current IT resources.
