    A virtual machine can support individual processes or a complete system depending on the abstraction level where virtualization occurs. Some VMs support flexible hardware usage and software isolation, while others translate from one instruction set to another. Virtualizing a system or component -such as a processor, memory, or an I/O device - at a given abstraction level maps its interface and vis... View full abstract»

    Developed more than 30 years ago to address mainframe computing problems, virtual machine monitors have resurfaced on commodity platforms, offering novel solutions to challenges in security, reliability, and administration. Stanford University researchers began to look at the potential of virtual machines to overcome difficulties that hardware and operating system limitations imposed: This time th...

    A virtualized system includes a new layer of software, the virtual machine monitor. The VMM's principal role is to arbitrate accesses to the underlying physical host platform's resources so that multiple operating systems (which are guests of the VMM) can share them. The VMM presents to each guest OS a set of virtual platform interfaces that constitute a virtual machine (VM). Once confined to spec... View full abstract»

    A virtual machine monitor is a software system that partitions a single physical machine into multiple virtual machines. Traditionally, VMMs have created a precise replica of the underlying physical machine. Through faithful emulation, VMMs support the execution of legacy guest operating systems such as Windows or Linux without modifications. However, traditional VMMs suffer from poor scalability ...

    We have developed a middleware system that integrates and extends virtual machine and virtual network technologies to support mutually isolated virtual distributed environments in shared infrastructures like the grid and the PlanetLab overlay infrastructure. Integrating virtual network and on-demand virtual machine creation and customization technologies makes virtual distributed environments a re... View full abstract»
