Learning curve myth: Virtualization is too difficult to learn and too complicated to support.

The reverse is much more accurate. Virtualization makes use of the existing skill sets of most organizations’ support staff. Unix, Mac, Linux and Windows services will function very close to the way they do before virtualization. The skills needed to support the existing hardware environment easily convey to a virtual arrangement. Operating systems in a virtual solution perform much like their physical counterparts.

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.
