Prepare applications to obtain the benefits of hardware-based virtualization as a means of addressing the limitations of software-based virtualization. As hardware that supports Intel® Virtualization Technology becomes widely deployed, many organizations will be concerned with preparing their application infrastructures for these new capabilities.
Tens of thousands of companies are taking advantage of today's server virtualization solutions to consolidate their infrastructures, reduce their total costs, and improve business on Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers provides optimized, enterprise-class solution that can help IT organizations deploy virtualization with confidence across a broader range of production scenarios, while reducing total costs and delivering a better return on their investment.

Look to Intel for the performance and virtualization needed in today’s critical security operations
Intel is working across the technology industry to ensure the development of powerful, reliable Linux*-based solutions on Intel® platforms-from handheld and mobile clients to desktop PCs, workstations and servers.
Virtualization allows one physical computer to act as many virtual machines. It allows a single machine to run multiple operating systems, each OS behaving as if on a dedicated computer. Get acquainted with Intel® Virtualization Technology. Learn what it is, how it works, its benefits, and some of its many uses.

Virtualization in a Tera-Scale Environment
In the previous article, we talked about the synchronization challenges developers face in an environment with a large number of cores, and two possible ways to approach the challenges. In this article, we’ll talk more about the additional benefits expected from virtualization in future Tera-scale environments.
This document addresses some of the performance issues inherent within a virtualized environment. Those interested in this whitepaper may include individuals and groups looking at using virtualized environments for the first (or very nearly) time. Once you have gone through the exercise of determining the performance of your server(s)/application(s) in a virtualized environment, you will be able to move forward with virtualization more comfortably.
