We have a request from management to standardize our terminology for 
virtualization technology.  They, with input from in-house experts, propose 
the following terminology.  Does anyone know of any reason these terms should 
not become the standard? I need feedback by the end of the day on 4 June so I 
can get back to management about implementation. If there are no objections, 
we can start standardizing on these terms immediately.
