Information Technology advances with a very fast pace. The IT companies come up with new products, which offer alternative solutions for existing products. The CIO-s must adopt new technologies in their IT infrastructure, but also maintain operational costs within the budget. Business continuity remains one of the challenges of the IT service support. The increase of the usage of technology has pushed the businesses to prepare for the continuity of online core businesses. The CIO-s need to prepare for business continuity plans and disaster recovery scenarios.

The Virtualization technology provides a solution to achieve strategic objectives for the availability of IT services for different businesses. In the era of cloud services, virtualization offers a hybrid solution, which allows a mix of traditional and modern application architectures. Virtualization offers an innovative solution for the restore of IT online services in a relatively short amount of time.

Virtualization is a new technology that refers to the creation of a virtual machine that acts like a real computer with an operating system. The actual machine on which the virtualization takes place is called the host machine and the virtual machine is called the guest machine. The guest machines use a portion of the resources of the host machine, such as RAM memory and hard disk capacity.  This technology enables the creation of guest virtual machines with new software, which rely on the resources of the host machine.

In the era of cloud services, virtualization offers a hybrid solution, which allows a mix of traditional and modern application architectures. Virtualization offers an innovative solution for the restore of IT online services in a relatively short amount of time. In the era of Cloud Computing the implementation of virtualization technology is crucial not only for companies that offer cloud services, but also for important IT companies and businesses.
