The main topic of the project focuses on the performance of an operating system whilst it is being run within a virtualized environment. These tests should be performed on the three current types of server virtualization technologies currently available, they are: hardware emulation, operating system (container-based) virtualisation and Para-virtualisation. This project main focus is on the computer and network performance of an Operating system and create a comparison between them.
The main topic of the project focuses on the computer and network performance of an operating system whilst it is being run within a virtualised environment and to create a comparison of the 3 types of virtualisation, stating the output results from the experiments and explaining why one type of virtualisation is better than another overall.
After creating the necessary amount of virtual machines, the testing of computer and network performance should be tested using benchmarking tools and a comparison should be made.
