Virtualization is a technology that transforms today’s powerful computer hardware, which was designed to run a single operating system and a single application, to run multiple virtual machine having independent operating system. Many times, we observes that the server resources been underutilized. Virtualization allows us to efficiently utilize the available resources on physical machine. In virtualization environment, different virtualized machines can have different host operating system (i.e. different versions windows, Linux, Solaris etc). The most important concept to understand in virtualization is that, the virtual machines operating systems are independent from physical server operating system. This paper is an attempt to illustrate and appreciate the concept of virtualization and its implementation by using a live case study which we have implemented for one of our leading ETL tool development for a client. Case study elaborates the implementation details about Virtualized DB Clustering and Server Consolidation
