Chapter 1 What is virtualization? > HOW VIRTUALIZATION WORKS

HOW VIRTUALIZATION WORKS

How our definition is implemented depends on a vendor’s view of the world. As you might expect—since this is a book on how to implement Microsoft’s virtualization solutions—we move virtualization from concept to reality using Microsoft’s virtualization toolbox. In this chapter, we provide a high-level overview. In Chapter 2, we examine Microsoft’s complete virtualization strategy.

The Microsoft virtualization toolbox contains solutions for both server (Hyper-V) and client (App-V and Virtual PC/MED-V) platforms. Each solution is implemented in a way that closely aligns with the virtualization business and technology drivers reviewed later in this chapter. We focus on App-V in this chapter, because it appears to be Microsoft’s preferred method of virtual application delivery. Chapter 15 is dedicated to Virtual PC and MED-V.
