Anybody know if it's possible to "Hardware" partition a decent size machine -- for example say I have a QUAD 16 GB Machine could I split it into TWO 2GB DUO 8 GB machines so I could run two OS'es on REAL hardware rather than create a number of Virtual Machines.
The Video and audio can be shared as well as the drives.
IBM on its mainframes has something like this called PRISM where you can split the hardware up so you can run severl "mini machines" on a bigger machine.
With the cheapness of hardware available something likie this would be great -- and before someone asks the obvious question --why not buy TWO machines - apart from power / space / reduntant componets in the second machine being able to partition the first means you could change the configuration from time to time -- say make 4 * 4GB SINGLE CPU machines etc etc.
Advantage of this over "classical" virtualisation is that you can actually test stuff on REAL hardware.
