Virtualization technologies have been compared to the movie, The Matrix. In this, Neo and other humans, are captured in a virtual world. Neo is offered a blue pill or a red pill. The blue pill will return him to his normal unreal world in the matrix. The red will set his mind free by exposing the matrix. When it comes to virtualization technologies, the red pill and blue pill have similar meanings.
