3.1 Virtual server

Next

The first goal of this project is to create virtual servers sharing the same machine. A virtual server operate like a normal Linux server. It runs normal services such as telnet, mail servers, web servers, SQL servers. In most cases, the services run using standard configuration: The services are running unaware of the virtual server concept.

Normal system administration is performed with ordinary admin tool. Virtual servers have users account and a root account.

Packages are installed using standard packages (RPMs for example).

There are few exceptions. Some configuration can't be done inside a virtual server. Notably the network configuration and the file-system (mount/umount) can't be performed from a virtual server.
