What’s the difference between Virtualization and Cloud Computing?
Virtualization simply means creating a computer environment that has traditionally existed on a dedicated piece of hardware (as an example, think… network server) and building it on a physical piece of equipment that has multiple purposes (think… multiple servers in one box). The actual hardware can reside on-site or in a remote data center.
Cloud Computing, on the other hand, means that your applications and/or your data reside at a remote site and are accessed by you via a secure Internet connection. Online backup solutions are an example of Cloud Computing.
