Virtualization can be defined as a software technology, which stimulates complex hardware. On the other hand, cloud computing makes use of virtualization in order to manage workload consolidation and server resources. Cloud computing can be referred to as a model that is used to enable on-demand, convenient, ubiquitous network access to a shared number of configurable computing resources such as servers, applications, networks, storage, and services.

Cloud computing receives such transformation through software interoperability, bandwidth improvements, and the development of virtualization technology. There are three categories of cloud computing, which are software as a service (saas), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (Iaas).

Virtualization, which came into use widely in the early 2000s, is a software technology that helps to distribute the abilities if a computer resources between several environments and users. Virtualization enhances various aspects of a computer's storage, software, memory, data, etc., which are the properties that make it possible for cloud computing elasticity, scalability, and multi-tenancy.

The principle contrast between the two ideas is that virtualization alludes to the control of programming and equipment, while cloud computing is the result of this procedure. For all intents and purposes, distributed computing is an idea made from one item, virtualization.

What creates turmoil between the two terms, is that distributed computing utilizes virtualized items in its structure.

cloud computing empowers the business to share and make its information accessible to anybody, anyplace. For this, in any case, it utilizes programming that has built up various virtual foundations, from a physical layer, bringing about virtualization.

While cloud computing guarantees diminished framework design expenses and straightforwardness for clients, virtualization gives foundation related offices, guaranteeing that exceptionally huge structures – which would have been in any case to a great extent lost.

Virtualization can, in this manner, be viewed as an item as it is conceivable to buy arrangements through programming. Distributed computing is an IT engineering idea. Be that as it may, the administrations offered by the cloud are completely corresponded with virtualization for programming arrangements just as portable situations.
