Collaborative activities among distributed communities are very much relying on their existing ICT infrastructure. Since different communities inherently use different computer technologies that suit their individual requirements, it is highly possible and most appropriate to utilise virtualised system infrastructures for distributed collaborative work. This is been discussed in detail with providing different virtualisation technologies, strengths and weaknesses of each, practical work performed and expanding to future work and outlook. Virtualisation can provide hardware independence and operational flexibility in such work. This paper also proposes an integrated collaborative workspace environment that employs data centre, collaboration and mobility system infrastructure based on the virtualisation technology. Further, models for applications of virtualisation, virtualisation acceptance roadmap for organisations’, higher level benefits, research findings and future work are discussed.
