Re: Reg: Nova System Architecture


Hi again,

You would need a compute driver for a hypervisor supporting a distributed
virtual machine.
I have a very limited knowledge of server virtualization and nova drivers,
but I don't think such driver exists for nova.

In fact, I don't think a hypervisor which does that is generally available
at the moment.
You probably might look at tools such as PVM or OpenMP.
