(also Intel VT, Vanderpool)
Intel processors’ native ability to partition computing capacity and host several operating systems on one machine at the same time. This is more efficient than software-based virtualization, resulting in increased performance for virtual machines.
Pre-2005: Intel Virtualization Technology was codenamed Vanderpool in development.
2005: Pentium 4 “Prescott” chips 662 and 672 were the first Intel processors to support virtualization technology.
