The difference between cloud computing and cloud virtualization

The development of a world of information technology is rapidly increasing. Development of information technology has purpose for time efficiency and cost efficiency. One of the world developments of information technology is to the efficient use of computer hardware. The way to hardware efficiency is to use cloud computing or cloud virtualization. There is a difference between cloud computing and cloud virtualization. Cloud computing is a form of computing Internet-based that offers resources such as storage and information processing capabilities. While cloud virtualization makes resource simulation and enables the computer hardware can provide multiple services as well. The main difference is contained in the resource is owned by a cloud computing is service providers while cloud virtualization the company or individual manage the server or hardware in environment own computer. Resource purchased or rented from services managed by cloud computing-related service providers, while the cloud virtualization is fully managed by the application individual or company. The cloud virtualization and cloud computing can save money by using resources more efficiently. Service virtualization and cloud computing over balancing the needs and resource provision, allowing the hardware to achieve their full potential. The cloud virtualization is users do not need to buy new hardware to try a particular environment, while the benefits of cloud computing by the use of a company is likely to save because the company does not need to buy hardware to perform the operational, but only by subscribing to cloud computing services. When you use internet, any time you can be attacked by malware and phishing websites! Internet is now a part of lifestyle is a threat in store if you are not careful, whenever your computer can be a victim. Luckily now you can avoid and take some remedial action against malware attacks and phishing websites by using cloud security that is part of cloud computing.


  1. Cloud Computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a metered service over a network (typically the Internet). Cloud Computing may look like Virtualization because it appears that your application is running on a virtual server detached from any reliance or connection to a single physical host. However, Cloud Computing can be better described as a service where Virtualization is part of a physical infrastructure.

    Cloud Computing builds on top of a virtualized infrastructure (compute, storage, network) by using standardization and automated delivery to provide service management. This makes monitoring the virtualized resources and the responsible deployment of these resources possible.

    Virtualization is simply a preparation for the delivery of IT in a very powerful way within an organization. It removes a level of complexity for end users, one that should never have been there in the first place, while primarily cutting costs for the organization. Cloud Computing ties directly to the way an organization uses its IT resources and enables a quantum change in the experience throughout the organization – easing the administrative burden of deploying, managing, delivering IT resources, and providing the ability for end users to request and use virtualized IT resources (or perhaps even an application or a business process where the end user does not have to be aware of the underlying IT resources being used).

    Virtualization is a necessary and logical step that all organizations need to take in adopting a cloud computing infrastructure. However, it is critical that even when taking this first step, they do so with Cloud Computing as the end in mind. They need to make tradeoffs in adopting Virtualization in a way that they are successful with their adoption of Cloud Computing. And, organizations need to understand that Standardization and Automation on top of virtualization are what provide Cloud Computing for the organization.

  2. This is very useful post because this technology is the need of the age, from security point of view it very good to be adopted. Anyway it is amazing creation on this subject. Keep it up.
