Gartner’s experts predict that cloud computing will have almost driven out the traditional on-premises model of workload location by 2020. “Cloud will increasingly be the default option for software deployment,” said Jeffrey Mann, Research Vice President at Gartner. “The same is true for custom software.”
Virtualization is the creation of virtual servers, infrastructures, devices and computing resources. A great example of how it works in your daily life is the separation of your hard drive into different parts. While you may have only one hard drive, your system sees it as two, three or more different and separate segments. Similarly, this technology has been used for a long time. It started as the ability to run multiple operating systems on one hardware set and now it a vital part of testing and cloud-based computing.
