Virtualization in both computer systems and network elements is becoming increasingly part of the Internet. Apart from posing new challenges, virtualization enables new functionalities, and hints at a future Internet architecture, which contains a physical, but polymorphic, substrate on which various parallel infrastructures can be created on demand.
