Virtually virtual

18 03 2008

For poor experimentalists who don’t have enough money to buy a lot of computers, but yet still want to do experiments with computer networking, there’s a way to build a virtual network which runs on one computer only. Check out this page.

And if it’s not enough, I mean, if these experimentalists are too lazy to setup a dedicated computer to run the experiments, the virtual network can also be built on a virtual machine! Check it out here. That is, virtual network running on virtual computers… hah!

But don’t get too excited, this bunch of virtual-computers-in-a-network-which-runs-on-a-virtual-machine are, for obvious reason, useless for high performance computing (a.k.a cluster-based supercomputer) =)
