7.2 Partitioning

Next

Partitioning (domains ?) is a way to split the resources of a large server so you end up with independent servers. For example, you can take a 20 CPUs server and create 3 servers, two with 4 CPUs and one with 12. You can very easily re-assign CPUs to servers in case you need more for a given tasks.

This technology provides full Independence, but much less flexibility. If your 12 CPUs server is not working much, the 4 CPUs one can't borrow some CPUs for 5 minutes.
