Virtualization Role in Computing Field Discussed by Mind Commerce in Topical Research Report Now Available at

12 Feb 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – In a computing context, virtualization is an act of creating a virtual version of a resource or device, such as a storage device, operating system (OS), virtual computer hardware platform, and computer network resources, among others. Hardware (or server) virtualization or platform virtualization involves creating a virtual machine which acts like a real computer with an OS. Virtualization software facilitates abstraction of code and associated data and controls.

A heap of technologies are employed in virtualization, with some of them allowing for the interface between platforms over an application-programming interface (API). Software-defined networking (SDN) is one such a technology and API, enabling network administrators to manage network services via abstraction of lower level functionality.

Network functions virtualization (NFV), an initiative which has grabbed the imagination and engagement of the telecom industry recently, offers a novel way of the designing, deployment and management of networking services. The business stimulus for NFV is primarily a cut in capital and operational expenditures, service velocity enhancement, and the potency to achieve a better customer experience.

Topical report “Virtualization in Cloud Computing, Network Infrastructure, Software Services and Platform Services” drawn up by Mind Commerce provides an in-depth evaluation of virtualization in the fields such as cloud computing, software services, network infrastructure, and platform services. The study examines key opportunities and challenges with respect to virtualization in SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS; reviews virtualization operational opportunities and challenges. Furthermore, the research report includes valuable use cases, and provides a future vision along with forecasts to 2014 for the particular case of virtualization within telephony – NFV.
