  • By using hypervisors like Xen and KVM, you can create many virtual machine within a single physical machine depending on your system configuration. The created virtual machines can be added to cluster of resources in cloud for computing purposes.

    Some of the cloud computing softwares support other hypervisors like VMWare and Virtualbox too.
