“In computing, virtualization (or virtualisation) is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as a hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device, or network resources.”

I even found a really long article on ComputerWeekly with this incorrect spelling: Virtualisation making IT more cost effective.
