Virtualize this! :P

''Virtualization is perhaps the hottest topic in IT at the moment.
Each app appears to have a machine to itself, while the underlying resources are shared between the virtual machines.

This approach is a lot easier and more efficient than running separate machines. If you want a large processor, virtualization can pull together resources on multiple servers. If you want lots of small ones--say, for remote desktops--you can run lots of virtual machines on one server. If you want to run multiple operating systems, each one gets its own virtual machine.
