hi there me and a couple of mates are paying for a dedicated server
and we want to use it for torrents is there away that we can split it into say 4 vps so we can have our own little like torrent seebox
and have a seprate loging for each box ?
sorry if this is posted in the wrong placeDedicated Servers Dedicated serverwindows vps
All depends on the box its self, Do you have a os on it? what is it windows? linux? other? If its windows then there are few options,
Microsoft Virtual Machine
And a few others i cant think of the top of my head.
Linux os as listed above xen is a good one
also you have VMWare ESX / EXSi
If your needing some help i can help you no problems but only if its windows because im not to technical with linux.
Also it depends on how technical minded you are or if you are able to read manual after manual if you dont know how to do something. This i guess is the key becuase if you got time + research then you will get it working for you with ease.
By using vuirtualization, splitting a dedciated server into VPS is possible. VMware Virtualization allows splitting of a dedicated server into Linux or Windows VPS, whereas there is Hyper-V virtualization platform developed by Microsoft, which allows creation of Winodws VPS on a dedicated server. The only condition here is, the OS requirement and the processor should support virtualization for any of these solutions to work.
You can install a virtualization application on the Dedicated server and create multiple virtual servers on it. Virtualization application may differ as Software Virtualization or Hardware Virtualization. Software Virtualization application is Virtuozzo and Hardware Virtualization can be Hyper-V or MW-Ware.
