The article focuses on the advantages of using hardware abstraction virtualization technique in the process operations of industrial plants. It says that the technique delivers reduced quantity of personal computers required, simplify overall system management, and lessen the impact of operating system (OS). It adds that virtualization lessens maintenance and operational expenses and allows expansions without adding new hardware because it could run various virtual machines on a single hardware.
