Virtualization abstracts hardware that allows multiple workloads to share a common set of resources. On shared virtualized hardware, a variety of workloads can co-locate while maintaining full isolation from each other, freely migrate across infrastructures, and scale as needed.
Businesses tend to gain significant capital and operational efficiencies through virtualization because it leads to improved server utilization and consolidation, dynamic resource allocation and management, workload isolation, security, and automation. Virtualization makes on-demand self-provisioning of services and software-defined orchestration of resources possible, scaling anywhere in a hybrid cloud on-premise or off-premise per specific business needs.
Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) represents a growing portfolio of technologies and features that make virtualization practical by eliminating performance overheads and improving security. Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) provides hardware assist to the virtualization software, reducing its size, cost, and complexity. Special attention is also given to reduce the virtualization overheads occurring in
, I/O, and memory. Over the last decade or so, a significant number of hypervisor vendors, solution developers, and users have been enabled with Intel® Virtualization Technology
(Intel® VT), which is now serving a broad range of customers in the consumer, enterprise, cloud, communication, technical computing, and many more sectors.
Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) portfolio currently includes (but not limited to):
