Application developers, SW engineers and test designers have found virtual machines in the data-center and now in the cloud to be a powerful, cheap and efficient source of compute resources.

In this talk, we will explore the differences between virtual and physical machines, understand when software needs to know it's virtualized and what developers and testers should do differently to accommodate both virtual and physical environments.
