Virtualization, what is it, why is it changing the course of business?
In this article, we will talk about a concept that, thanks to technology, is now considered a new direction for organizations: virtualization. We invite you to discover all that virtualization can do to benefit your business.
The pandemic has caused socio-economic changes in all sectors, especially in business, where there is a “before and after”. What we know as “normal” today will most likely be part of the past tomorrow. It creates a challenge we face every day: to evolve and remain relevant to the market, the demand, and the prosperity of our businesses.
Technology is a facilitator of this process, and it is advancing so rapidly that by the time we begin to assimilate a new application or update, we are already behind. Technology allows a better quality of life, facilitating and making any process more accessible and, above all, making it our ally, allowing us to be competitive and stay current.
Virtualization and its Goal of Creating Better Ways of Working

It offers organizations and teams have virtual machines that can be managed and run operating systems while sharing the resource from a host computer.
