The Cloud computing is most widely used technological concept which gives the efficient result in concern to availability and utilizing of resources, processing and management of the data on servers. These capabilities make cloud computing to decorate the programs of it. The concept of virtualization of cloud computing is main feature of this technology which provide a platform to many business application data, academic IT tools and industry to explore their data which can be easily available to end users. The time period sources may be represented as network, server, storage, utility and client. Virtual machines are picking up prevalence step by step and being embraced broadly over the globe. Right now, attempt to comprehend the usefulness of the hypervisor and its applications. We will investigate the ongoing inquiries in the field of the hypervisor to perceive what more changes it can have later on and challenges for those changes. We will likewise perceive how we can utilize virtualization through hypervisors to make sure about our servers and take care of security issues.

Keywords: Servers, hypervisor, security, virtual machine, cloud computing, resources
