Why is virtualization important in the context of cloud computing?

I know that virtualization is a important trend in computing. I have a decent understanding of how it works (I can run windows in linux or vice versa), but I do not understand how virtualization would work in cloud computing. Is it just that it allows people migrating to cloud architectures to simulate the environment they already have? Is there more to it?
