Sample text

Server-A has Microsoft Windows 2000 Server installed as its guest OS. Server-B has Red Hat Linux installed as its guest OS. Server-C has Novell Netware installed as its guest OS. Each of the guest servers are booted and run independently of one another. If needed, they could communicate with each other or even the host server using normal TCP/IP networking communications. Virtual Hardware Overview Virtual hardware is made up of a set of virtual devices or virtual device interfaces that are exposed to a virtual machine.

Each soft partition “sees” its own set of hardware resources that it may consume. This leads to an interesting question: can a software-partitioning virtualization platform be installed and used within a soft partition? Although this is theoretically possible, it is highly impractical and unusable as a solution. In some cases, depending on the specific virtualization platforms used, the virtualization platform may not even complete the installation process. In other cases, operating systems installed in a soft partition of another soft partition execute too slowly to be used effectively.

In most cases, there is a one-to-one ratio between each unit of memory assigned to a virtual machine as it maps to the host server’s physical memory. For example, if a host server has three virtual machines and VM A is configured with 256MB of memory, VM B is configured with 256MB of memory and VM C is configured with 512MB of memory, a total of 1GB (1024MB) of memory is mapped between the virtual machines and the host server’s physical memory. The host server would typically need at least 1GB of memory to support the virtual machines plus enough memory to support the host operating system, the virtualization platform and any other applications that may be installed on the host server.
