Hello members

I am new to virtualization technology, yet it has become a trending technology in Information Technology, many companies are switching to virtualized IT environments.

But it is always good to understand the pros and cons of any Technological advancement before making a switch to it. Therefore I would like to know form experienced users about the pros and cons of virtualization in enterprise level IT environments.
