The author reflects on the move of financial services industry to adopt virtualization technology. He states that the technology provides several benefits to the industry, including lower capital and operating expenses, better resources utilization, and greater flexibility to meet changing business needs. He introduces fault tolerance-class software, which transparently combines and manages the resources of two virtual machines running on different servers in a virtual resource pool.
