The Advantages and Disadvantages of Virtualisation Explained

Virtualisation is a computer technology which allows for the creation of a virtual as opposed to an actual or physical version of something, like an operating system, network resource or storage device. For instance a virtual Windows operating system can be easily accessed via a Mac which gives the user an opportunity to work with two operating systems on one computer / hardware. With this approach people and businesses are able to centralize the management of their network. It also reduces the dependency on additional hardware and software which cost extra both in the long and short term.
