This book is for those of us that wish for a practical understanding of deploying UML within a realistic environment. This is a neat technique for enabling multiple virtual machines to share the same file system and thus avoid the unnecessary disk space and memory costs of full multiple instances.
The technique allows you to run multiple sandboxed virtual instances of Linux from one machine under a master Linux operating system. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.
The first few chapters quickly introduce the bare essentials. In the oncoming world of dual processor, quad processor desktop environments and beyond, the subject area will surely evolve into a more generally valuable technique for a much wider audience who wish to fully use the capacity of their systems. How do we get things done? Now, for the first time, the creator and maintainer of User Mode Linux shows how to put it to work hands-on.
You will not gain a great oversight into general virtualization techniques or a market survey of tools that sit in competition. Virtualization is a hot topic The contents The book is a mid sized pager, split over thirteen chapters.
Ilnux is a hot topic. Being a clear community effect with industrial support I expect UML will pop up in all kinds of packages in unexpected and diverse ways.
