Cluster Grid with virtualization
 
Hello,
I have an idea, but do not know how to implement. I would like to create a cluster of n machines that create a pool resorce, for instance using VirtualBox, create the virtual machine, but I wish if necessary, a virtual machine can be performed by two real computers, so that the virtual machine has with more resources than the two real machines.
I do not know if you understand.:confused:

Can you help me to implement such a project?

Thanks
Angelo

You cannot run 1 VM on multiple servers at the same time.
Really can't see a reason why you would want that.

You might want to have a look at "Cloud computing" .. VMWare has some nice solutions for that, .. it's not cheap though.

The reason to implement such a thing is that in a laboratory that has n machines, you could create a level of virtual machines, so when you connect to this remote laboratory is accessing a VM and when ' remote user needs more resources, leverages all the VMs in the cluster to have a more performative.
I think one thing is already possible to pool resources with VMware, but I want to do with free software such as VirtualBox or KVM.

As far as i know there are no free solutions for cloud computing

Actually there is something for ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com/cloud/private/deploy UEC, but do not know if a cloud is able to do what I intend to do ...

You might want to take a look at Proxmox: http://www.howtoforge.com/kvm-and-op...ith-proxmox-ve

Awsome, just what I've been looking for. I was testing openqrm but this seems to be easier to impliment for a smaller cloud and has many of the same abilities.

This is great thanks again Falko. I'll give this a try instead.

tbh falko, that's not real cloud computing .. that's imho regular virtualisation with a nice web UI to manage it. There is nothing automagically done in proxmox.

on the other hand, proxmox is a very nice solution for some virtualisation.
