Throughout my career, I have relied on the use of analogies to help clients understand certain technical concepts. Saying "Think of bandwidth as a water pipe" kind of thing.

I am struggling with coming up with a good one for virtual machines. More and more nowadays the discussion of virtual servers and virtual desktops are coming up. I just haven't found that magic descriptor or explanation that covers it. The clients nod and all that, but I don't think they fully 'get it'.

Does anyone have any things they use? Some ideas?

Thanks,
