Computers can act as though they are other computers. A computer may appear to users as two or more different computers, even as different computers running different operating systems. This is not new--IBM's mainframes have been doing this for decades--but now personal computers can do it too. It is becoming popular to cluster many computers together to act as one very powerful machine. Also, computers can be linked in such a way that if one fails, the others will keep going and service is uninterrupted. In all these cases, these systems are creating virtual computers out of the real hardware. This is not, of course, for the casual PC owner. Those attempting such things must have a great deal of knowledge in networking and system administration to begin with, and then they need a book such as this. Wolf and Halter provide explanations of various virtual machine setups, backing up and recovering virtual machines, virtual file systems, fall-over and load-balancing clusters, and virtual storage. An appendix lists available software, and the accompanying CD-ROM has demonstration versions as well as sample scripts from the book. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended.
