Network & Server Virtualization
Using virtualization, traditional software and hardware resources -- such as operating systems, servers, switches, storage and network resources -- can be replicated in software, which can add impressive cost savings, agility, and flexibility to IT operations.

Microsoft's Hyper-V and VMware's vSphere are the two most popular server virtualization offerings in the enterprise today.
