The history of virtualization explained by Aruba Cloud and Microsoft Hyper-V is sometimes mistaken for a Type 2 virtualization solution. This is because unless you are using the stand-alone version, you require an operating system. Without the Hyper-V role installed, the operating system uses a HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) to access the hardware. When Hyper-V is installed, the HAL is replaced by a Hypervisor and the operating system and virtual machines access the hardware through the hypervisor. So essentially the hypervisor is a HAL with additional features required for virtual machines.

In our latest mobility report, we forecast that mobile data traffic will grow fourfold by 2025, reaching up to 160 exabytes (EB) per month. This is amazing of course and offers all kinds of opportunities for communications service providers, but there is also a potential downside to this rapid surge in data traffic: its impact on the energy consumption and carbon footprint of mobile networks. That’s not the only downside for communications service providers, as it also raises a significant cost concern. The energy consumption of today’s networks accounts for 10 percent of annual operation expenditure (OPEX). As we found in our AI report, the demand to reduce operational costs already ranks among the top priorities for today’s operators. With the deployment of 5G and a spike in data traffic forecast, suddenly this demand becomes even more relevant.
