In Detail

Virtual technology has been around for years, but only recently has it really taken off with the introduction of products such as VMware’s Player, Oracle’s Virtual box, and Microsoft’s Hyper-V. Each of these companies has begun to leverage virtualization in a reliable, secure, and scalable fashion to help businesses reduce their production costs.
