Application Virtualization is quite a useful technology that is used mainly in the offices of the companies. In this technology you can create a server and select the applications and softwares that you want to run on all the computers in your company’s office. This saves a lot of time and trouble because you do not have to install every software or application on each computer but you just install it on your virtual server and let the computers use it as if it is installed in their own computer.

Virtualization technology can be of great use if it is used to avoid using separate CPUs for every computer. This can be done by creating a powerful central computer that gives the power to every computer within the building so there would be just a monitor, keyboard and a mouse in an office. This solves the most common problem of maintaining the computers and keeping them safe from viruses and Trojans etc. because all you have to do is maintain the server that controls the individual computers. All the computers in the office take power from the virtual server and there is no risk involved in it.
