Cloud Computing and Virtualization

The cloud and virtualization have revolutionized enterprise computing and looks set to grow in importance over time. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) liberate companies from the constraints of legacy on-premises data centers; private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud architectures provide a host of options to suit individual business needs. Meanwhile, virtualization has moved beyond the server. Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) has the potential to free the data center from the limitations of physical networking equipment.
