Portal/IDB/icon-emulator-32x32.png This portal talks about virtualization. Technical language could be used.

In computing, platform virtualization is a term that refers to the abstraction of computer resources. Virtualization hides the physical characteristics of computing resources from their users (more on Wikipedia)

Note that virtualization is different than emulation, which duplicates (provides an emulation of) the functions of one system using a different system, so that the second system behaves like (and appears to be) the first system (more on Wikipedia)
