One of the major uses of Virtualization technology is server utilization that uses softwareto imitate the underlying hardware. Six types of virtualizations are currently making ahead in IT area which include Network Virtualization, Storage Virtualization, Server Virtualization, Data Virtualization, Desktop Virtualization and Application Virtualization.

Network Virtualization is an idea that disguises true complexity of the network by dividing it into possible parts. And each of the part is independent from the remaining parts and assigned to a particular server or device.

Storage Virtualization is known to be used in storage area networks. It’s a group of physical storage from multi network storage devices and appears as a single storage device which manages from a central console.

Sever Virtualization conceals server resources including individual physical processors, servers and operating systems.

Data Virtualization includes abstracting traditional details of data and data management such as format, performance or location in favor to wide range of access and more resiliencies that tied to business requirements.

Desktop Virtualization is majorly known as workstation load rather a server. DV allows user to operate desktop remotely by using a lean client at the desk.

Application Virtualization runs in an enclosed form without depending upon the operating system underneath. For instance, Application Virtualization allows a Windows app to run on Linux or Ubuntu and vice versa.
