Client Hypervisors

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi guys, as you all know I’m a huge proponent of virtualization. Virtualizing the server environment is a no brainer in my books. Just imagine how excited I was when the IT community started getting all pumped up about client hypervisors!

There is now talk of the ability to install a client hypervisor on a workstation pc and then use it in the same way we do server virtualization. What does this do for us? Well basically all the same things – it isolates the hardware away from the actual virtual machine, and also allows us to run multiple virtual machines on a single workstation.

In the mobile marketplace, a hypervisor was demonstrated on a mobile device allowing you to run multiple virtualized mobile operating systems on one device. Now that’s just too cool! :)

Anyways, I can’t wait for this technology to become mainstream. Over the next few years we are going to see the virtualization market explode!
