Classification of Virtualization Environment for Cloud Computing


Cloud Computing is a relatively new field gaining more popularity day by day for ramified applications among the Internet users. Virtualization plays a significant role for managing and coordinating the access from the resource pool to multiple virtual machines on which multiple heterogeneous applications are running. Various virtualization methodologies are of significant importance because it helps to overcome the complex workloads, frequent application patching and updating, and multiple software architecture. Although a lot of research and study has been conducted on virtualization, a range of issues involved have mostly been presented in isolation of each other. Therefore, we have made an attempt to present a comprehensive survey study of different aspects of virtualization. We present our classification of virtualization methodologies and their brief explanation, based on their working principle and underlying features.
