Both forms allow multiple operating systems to run on a single physical machine. With containers, these operating systems are isolated (they have their own file systems, processes, libraries including the libc, IP address, etc.) but they are nevertheless sharing the very same kernel. That's the reason why uname -a showed your host kernel version. With ...

This is a generally bad idea unless you can really justify the number of CPUs. Please place the onus back on the provider. What do they recommend you do, based on the workload? NUMA is less of an issue. But in practice, very few VMs in my environments have ever needed that number of CPUs. There were certainly more options and places to optimize before ...

The two are often used interchangeably but even two things both named VM or VPS can be quite different on a technical level. In the end, a VM is more of a technical term while VPS is a marketing item.

It sounds like you're describing something like the Azure Marketplace or AWS Marketplace. I have no idea if Digital Ocean, Linode, or any of the other niche cloud providers have a similar platform, but there isn't a single answer that is applicable across every provider.

You didn't provide very much information, but you ostensibly do not have hardware virtualization support enabled. You must go to your BIOS (usually hit delete during the boot-up process) and turn on the VT-x feature (for Intel processors) or the AMD-V feature (for AMD processors). Without knowing what kind of computer you have, there's no other information ...

To learn more about those VM too on my side, I asked your question on a private channel I have with MS and from a well known IE MVP I got this answer; There are no limits and they are not stripped down. nb. Limit for using the VM for testing anything, not for the actual activation limit.

A good starting point would be to read the Wikipedia article: Operating-system-level virtualization is a server virtualization method in which the kernel of an operating system allows the existence of multiple isolated user-space instances, instead of just one. Such instances, which are sometimes called containers, software containers, virtualization ...

Basically: Create a Premium Storage Use Azcopy or Storage Explorer to copy your VHD to the new premium storage Use template deployment to bring your VM back to life There's no GUI feature to help you on this job. Either use Template Deployment or Powershell/Cli to recreate the VM. I'm assuming you sysprep (Windows) or deprovision the agent (Linux) from ...

Functionally there are no restrictions on the system / OS. They do, however, maintain the usual evaluation licensing restrictions -- meaning they are for short-term, test use only. If you're going to do anything long-term or production based, you'll need to get the appropriate licensing.

Putting MySQL on a server outside your data center is going to introduce significant latency. You need to put your database in the same data center as your app server. The problem here is your budget, which has affected your deployment architecture. The smallest AWS Linux instance can run a good sized blog, especially if you do caching (eg Nginx page ...

Currently changing the VMSS model from platform image to custom image isn't supported (this might change in the future as model changes are opened up more). One way to do this with minimal downtime would be to create the new scale set, and then change the load balancer settings (i.e. a manual form of VIP swap, like disassociate the IP address from one LB, ...

Alright. I have to answer this question before anyone else. I followed this tutorial. http://blog.3mdeb.com/2015/12/30/emulate-rapberry-pi-2-in-qemu/ The key is that Changing ld.so.preload Then it boots. Then I think I can do a lot things using qemu new.sh. Here's the commands: /usr/local/src/qemu-2.6.0/bin/debug/native/arm-softmmu/qemu-system-arm \ ...

Both of your virtual hosts assign themselves an IP address automatically from the 169.254 address space, when they cannot connect to a DHCP server. Try to configure an address manually to both these VMs, for example in the 192.168.100.0/24 subnet.

Google has a page on building your own image which includes a section on the "Google Compute Engine image packages" and a link to the GitHub project. This shows the two packages that are installed to manage SSH keys, update hostnames, and clock skew, among other things. The stock images from Google include yum-cron which is a service and cron to ...

For the original poster, have you tried X2Go? I know that's another server piece you have to install in your 16.04 system, but using that on my machines, with the X2go client allowed multiple users to login with different X sessions at the same time. I find that depending on your hardware capabilities, the Mate and XFCE desktops perform really well. ...
