Since really drove the demand to virtualize memory so

Since
1960 IBM introduced evolving the ?rst virtual machine that allowed one computer
to be shared as if it was several. This is well-established conception by IBM
to virtual physical resources of mainframe systems to achieve improved
utilization of resources. (Manuela K. Ferreira Henrique C. Freitas, August 2008)1 During
that time there a need for multiple users to have access to a computer at the
same time. Meanwhile most applications spend most of the time waiting for data
to be read or written, there was enough compute power for several immediate
applications but memory was insufficient to support a large number of
simultaneous users on a system. It was the time-sharing environment that really
drove the demand to virtualize memory so that, in a sense, the real memory
could be time-shared properly among computer hardware resources and users
applications.(Rogers, February 2017 )2 Organizations

underutilization the computer hardware
resources.

Today computer hardware
is designed and architected for hosting multiple operating system and
applications. The principal resolution to this problematic is virtualization.

Virtualization typically
refers to the creation of virtual machine that can virtualize all of the
hardware resources, including processors, memory, storage, and network
connectivity.  With the virtualization,
physical hardware resources can be shared by one or more virtual machines. (Lee, 2014)3

This can have both
advantages and disadvantages. There are different types of virtualization as
well as the benefits of each:

•           Hardware Virtualization

•           Software Virtualization

•           Memory Virtualization

•           Storage Virtualization

•           Data Virtualization

•           Network Virtualization (Bill, March 12, 2012)4

This paper will focus on
memory virtualization and it impact in the computer hardware. It will study how
memory can be virtualize and analyses the aids of this technology.
