Storage management is one area of cloud computing that has benefited from virtualization in recent years. Storage virtualization entails gathering and merging multiple physical storage units and presenting them as a single storage cluster over a network.
This type is frequently used by businesses and individuals who want to expand and scale their storage without investing in physical storage facilities. Furthermore, storage virtualization improves storage management by allowing multiple storage points to be easily accessed from a single repository.

Network virtualization is used to combine multiple networks into one, duplicate a network’s resources, and run an interconnection between virtual machines.
Virtual networks can be separated and deployed using network virtualization, each with its own configuration that does not affect the other. For example, when creating a virtual network, you can share your bandwidth and assign it to different channels as needed. Furthermore, network virtualization enables multiple users to run the same virtual network on the same physical network without causing network latency issues.

The primary goal of application virtualization is to provide cloud users with remote access to applications hosted on a server. The server stores all of the information and features required for the application to function and is accessible via the internet. As a result, in order to gain access, you do not need to install the application on your native device. Application virtualization allows end users to access two different versions of the same application via a hosted application or packaged software.

Organizations are sometimes faced with the challenge of analyzing data gathered from various sources. Data virtualization can help with this by ensuring that data gathered from multiple sources is analyzed collectively to improve productivity.
Furthermore, storage virtualization allows organizations to manage all of their data from multiple sources, such as Google Analytics, Excel files, and HubSpot reports, from a single location.

Server virtualization enables organizations to partition server resources in such a way that they are fully utilized. One of its primary goals is to assist in the partitioning of large physical servers into multiple instances of virtual servers. This allows each server to be masked and run as a standalone server.
Organizations can use server virtualization to scale their server resources without investing in physical servers and deploy them based on user requests, needs, and computing power.
