Virtualization, in computing, is the creation of a virtual version of something, such as a hardware platform, operating system, storage device or network resource.
Virtualization can be viewed as an aspect of an overall trend in enterprise IT termed autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on perceived activity, as well as utility computing, in which computer processing power is seen as a utility that clients pay for only the resources needed.
The common goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and workloads. In addition to servers, the desktop, software, memory and storage can also be virtualized. Most companies are replacing rack mounted servers with virtualized servers to facilitate easier management and administration and reduce costs.
