Techopedia explains Compute Virtualization

Compute virtualization is a process which enhances the efficiency and reduces the cost of IT infrastructure. It provides a flexible model for virtual machines through which physical servers are treated as a pool of resources. It works by consolidating the servers, and thus reduces the need for computer equipment and other related hardware, thus reducing the costs. It simplifies the business procedures related to licensing, and thus can make things more manageable. It creates a centralized infrastructure which can be shared and accessed from various employees sitting in different locations at a time.
