What is Virtual Environment?
A virtual environment is an independent server module (Operating System + Application) that generally run-on independent servers. But with server virtualization, it is possible to run multiple virtual machines in a single (high capacity) server. In this process, each Virtual Machine considers that it is running on its own server (with dedicated resources).
Virtual to cloud migration is the process of moving data, applications or other business elements to a cloud computing environment from Virtualization Platform like (VMWare, Hyper-V, XenServer, KVM) to destination Alibaba cloud.
