In addition to network, storage and server virtualization there is
also application and desktop virtualization. The name application
virtualization is somewhat confusing as it refers to something
completely different to the cloud applications mentioned earlier.

Application virtualization is all about traditional PC applications
working within a so called “virtual box” which allows them to be
installed faster. The virtual box including the application is simply
loaded as an image. It makes sure that the application does not conflict
with other applications, as they are each in their own virtual box. And it
does not change the underlying operating systems (no settings in the
registry, no DLLs loaded or deleted.)
