What is VT-d vs Intel Virtualization Technology?

Virtualization allows a user to create a virtual machine and run it on the same computer by sharing its physical resources without changing the host environment. DMA means direct memory access and VT-d DMA protection is the process of securing your virtualized access to your machine’s physical memory systems.
