Current and Potential Uses of Virtualisation
In the context of network and computing infrastructure, virtualisation is the creation of a virtual version of a physical resource (e.g. network, router, switch, optical device or computing server), based on an abstract model of that resource and often achieved by partitioning (slicing) and/or aggregation. A virtual infrastructure is a set of virtual resources interconnected together and managed by a single administrative entity.
