Virtualisation is a proven software technology that is rapidly transforming the IT landscape and fundamentally changing the way that people compute. Today’s powerful computer hardware was originally designed to run only a single operating system and a single application, but Virtualisation breaks that bond, making it possible to run multiple operating systems and multiple applications on the same computer at the same time, increasing the utilisation and flexibility of hardware. Virtualisation is a technology that can benefit anyone who uses a computer, from IT professionals and Mac enthusiasts to commercial businesses and government organisations. Join the millions of people around the world who use Virtualisation to save time, money and energy while achieving more with the computer hardware they already own.
