Abstract : The issue of mobility of computers and the applications that run on them has become a prevalent issue in modern day computing. The demand for computing anywhere with anything is increasingly high. Users want to be able to access their documents, use their important applications, and even their entire desktops on the go. They want to be able to do these without having to carry their computer systems everywhere with them. Tablets and “super smart-phones” have done a lot to an extent to resolve some of these issues as they are very light and easy to carry around and can carry out a couple of the tasks that the normal computer system should carry. But still these devices are too small (in terms of memory) to be really able to carry the many applications a user needs, or let alone process them. Also because of flexibility users would like to access the same thing with any device, instead of being tied to one device. Cloud computing and virtualization provide a solution to all of these issues and even more. They provide several consolidation and virtual solutions that help make data recovery and data redundancy easier, maintenance and management of information technology easier, and even reduce information technology costs. Small and medium enterprises recognise that technology is critical for growth, productivity and competitiveness, but high costs, access to scarce skills, and the retention of legacy information technology systems often make it difficult to maximize the return on investment and benefits that modern technology offers. Cloud computing and virtualization offers a solution to this dilemma also. By using software applications accessed over the web, these enterprises can take advantage of functionality that would otherwise only be affordable by large enterprises. These services provided to the small and medium enterprises are provided at a pay-as-you-go basis. Also the enterprises can pay for what they need as the business expands or contracts. Issues such as buying hardware, providing technical support, and recruiting specialist information technology skills are removed, allowing the managers of these establishments to concentrate on sales, growth and profitability.
