Licensing myth: Virtualization creates licensing problems.

It may seem that using virtualization could let a radical administrator use too many or too few licenses for a particular product. As a result, that would put their organization at risk legally. Virtual solutions are subject to the same restrictions as their physical counterparts. For example, Windows systems perform license activation via the Internet or the system software expires after a trial period and ceases to operate without proper license activation. Separately, license management packages can protect an organization’s liability even without virtualization.

Virtualization, one of the fastest growing trends in IT, lets any organization run multiple server functions on a single computer. Virtualization also makes it easier to start up new server emulations quickly. In case of failure, organizations can move server functions to new computers without interrupting service. Beyond saving a lot of money on large sites, virtualization is also moving to PC networks and serves as a foundation for cloud computing. Many myths surround virtualization. Some started when past limitations still existed. Other myths get started and spread by those who have separate agendas or those who have a limited understanding of virtualization. Here are some of the most common myths, identified by Global Knowledge.
