Can cloudmin do this ?

Hello, i didn't understand if cloudmin is the right software for me.

I want a cloud software that can use about 100 core cpu over 4-5 physical systems, over 100gb real ram memory, and about xxx tb of ssd space as one server.

This server will have a mysql, apache and other small services.

Can Cloudmin do this for me ? Will Cloudmin covert 4 physical servers as 1 big virtual one? If YES, what Cloudmin services i need to buy? Or if NO , can be done this thing that i want? Or how can i do this thing that i want ?

Thank you !

Cloudmin will let you manage a lot of VPS systems spread across different physical servers. But they will all appear as individual VPS systems - if you want to distribute load between them then you really want something else -- but don't expect it to be a simple project.

It does offer some simple round-robin stuff for managing multiple systems but it sounds like you are looking for something more sophisticated.

Short answer: No

Complex answer: See below

No, no solution can do this. Example, you can't do this either on any other cloud unless you use some special type operating system for grid or mainframe computing, I don't think this is what you want since you said Apache and other normal softwares.

This requires a mix of software and hardware solutions, even at the network level to work right and even so its very, very complex and expensive to setup and maintain (clustering). Since servers are so huge in terms of power there is no need for that either. I mean, in the past this made more sense, but today hardware is huge and I don't think you will pass the limits easily even with huge amounts of traffic.

Example, if you want to launch a single environment with over 100 GB RAM and multiple cores, yes you can, as long as your hardware is big enough and the underlying visualization hypervisor supports it, example XenServer supports up to 16 CPU and 128 GB per VM right now. So you could launch one VM with those limits and run Apache on it. Please take into account you will have other problems with this types of setups, since some software will not play nicely with huge amounts of memory, you will probably hit memory leaks at those levels so I could actually not suggest monstrous settings.

Sharing CPU among different servers can't be done with a regular operating system, even if you could you would need each server to have the same CPU model or circuit stepping, as well storage (SAN, etc).
