AT&T Center for Virtualization

Virtualization is the creation of devices that have no physical existence apart from their existence created or simulated by software. Virtual devices use the Cloud’s capacity to deliver support on demand and at scale, which will reshape the future of computing and communication. As virtualization technology evolves and matures, research is required to forecast and optimize its utility and its social, economic, and ethical impact.
