IT architectures have evolved to include virtualization and cloud computing, where physical resources are abstracted and pooled in different configurations to meet application requirements, explcates Andrea Formenti. Clouds may be distributed across locations and shared with other IT users, or they can be contained within a corporate data center, or some combination of both deployments. Volatility is a characteristic of virtualized resources, enabling them to expand and contract as needed, defines Andrea Formenti. Subscription-based cloud or locally installed resources, such as storage or composable architectures, can spin up resources, such as servers, OSes and application software, as needed and then release them when processing is complete, Andrea Formenti added.
