Using Virtualization For Distributed Computing
The past few decades have seen many changing trends in distributed computing systems in the form of grid,
cloud, utility and cluster. With the advent in technology, there has been an increase in the demand for deployment of a robust
distributed network for maximizing the performance of such systems and minimizing the infrastructural cost. In this paper
we have discussed various levels at which virtualization can be implemented for distributed computing which can contribute
to the increased efficiency and performance of distributed computing.
