Top Virtualization Solutions People are Looking For in 2009

A Survey by

This is the summary of Survey conducted by in which the participants were asked only one simple question “What they are looking for in 2009 in relation to Virtualization”. So we can also call the following as “Virtualization Trends 2009”

1. Windows Virtualization

Windows takes advantage of virtualization assistance in hardware that is based on Intel Virtualization Technology and AMD "Pacifica." By doing this, Windows virtualization enables workloads such as server consolidation, efficient software development and testing, resource management for dynamic data centers, application rehosting and compatibility, and high-availability partitions.

2. Server Virtualization

Server virtualization is the masking of server resources, including the number and identity of individual physical servers, processors, and operating systems, from server users. The server administrator uses a software application to divide one physical server into multiple isolated virtual environments. The virtual environments are sometimes called virtual private servers, but they are also known as partitions, guests, instances, containers or emulations

3. VMware Virtualization

An automated datacenter, built on a VMware virtualization platform, lets you respond to market dynamics faster and more efficiently than ever before. VMware vSphere delivers resources, applications—even servers—when and where they’re needed. VMware customers typically save 50-70% on overall IT costs by consolidating their resource pools and delivering highly available machines with VMware vSphere.

4. Intel Virtualization

Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology  combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC

5. Virtualization Software

Virtualization software allows a single host computer to create and run one or more virtual environments. Virtualization software is most often used to emulate a complete computer system in order to allow a guest operating system to be run, for example allowing Linux to run as a guest on top of a PC that is natively running a Microsoft Windows operating system.

6. Microsoft Virtualization

Microsoft virtualization enables workloads such as server consolidation, efficient software development and testing, resource management for dynamic data centers, application rehosting and compatibility, and high-availability partitions.

7. Hardware Virtualization

Hardware virtualization is when the virtual machine manager is embedded in the circuits of a hardware component instead of being called up from a third-party software application. The virtual machine manager is called a hypervisor. The job of the hypervisor is to control processor, memory and other firmware resources.

8. Application Virtualization

Application virtualization (also known as application portability or application service virtualization) is the practice of running software from a remote server rather than on the user's computer. Application virtualization is an umbrella term that describes software technologies that improve portability, manageability and compatibility of applications by encapsulating them from the underlying operating system on which they are executed.

9. Xen Virtualization

The Xen hypervisor, the powerful open source industry standard for virtualization, offers a powerful, efficient, and secure feature set for virtualization of CPU architectures. It supports a wide range of guest operating systems including Windows, Linux, Solaris, and various versions of the BSD operating systems

10. Windows 7 Virtualization

With Windows Server 2008 now shipping with hypervisor-based virtualization capabilities, it's obvious that this technology will be making its way to the Windows client as well. Will it happen in time for Windows 7? Yes, it probably will. But Windows 7 will natively support the VHD virtual hard drive format utilized by Virtual PC and Hyper-V regardless.
