Cloud Computing - Virtualization


  • Hosting all of a physical machine's hardware and software components independently on a single or shared hardware resource.
  • In virtualization, we can run multiple operating systems on a single machine at the same time. In the case of dual-boot, we can run an OS at a time.
  • Virtual Machine: VM is the set of virtual hardware devices, virtual RAM and virtual CPU that run like a traditional operating system.
  • Virtual Server: It is also a virtual machine running as a server. It can run one or possibly more server-based application. This server may be a database or messaging or anything else.
  • VMM (Virtual Machine Monitor): VMM consists of multiple virtual machines top of the hypervisor to handle all the VMs.
  • Hypervisor: Hypervisor consists of multiple VMs and communicates with the real hardware to provide the resources to the available virtual machines. It controls all the physical resources on the computer. two types of the hypervisor exist as shown in the below diagram.

  • VIM (Virtual Infrastructure Management): VIM is a tool that is used for managing multiple VMMs. openNebula is the open-source VIM available. Using the VIM tool, we can manage the multiple VMMs from single computer or console.
Virtualization Products:
  • Microsoft Hyper-V: This is a type 2 hypervisor. It supports live migration of virtual machines without any downtime. It has the ability of VM snapshots or checkpoints, So in case of any disaster or failure, user can roll back the VM configuration to the time when it was working fine.
  • Citrix XenServer: This is a type 1 hypervisor, so it can run directly on hardware. This improves the overall system utilization and increases application performance because it accesses the hardware directly. 
    • XenServer automatically balances the load among all the virtual machines. If any virtual machine is idle then Xenserver dynamically allocates the memory to the another VM(s) that need more resources. 
    • There is improved security, administration and delegated access in terms of the management
    • It supports live migration and site recovery services.
    • It supports dynamic load balancing.

Blockchain in Theory - Blockchain, Bitcoin, Mining

   Blockchain is the software protocol that tell the Internet how to transfer money and assets. Blockchain is the layer and Bitcoin is the application. Just one of many cryptocurrency kinds of applications. When one user send email to another then both users do not have to know about the underlaying process except email address. Similarly,  User don't need to know anything other than other user's wallet address to send some bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.  Any file on Internet may have multiple copies but money is something that should not be copied multiple times. This has been a longstanding problem in computing networks namely the double spend problem. Satoshi Nakamoto introduced white paper for digital cash system in 2008 to resolve the double spending problem and fortified by a ledger which enforces the money is only spent once. It took 15 years alone for corporate email as the main application to be a standard thing in our lives. And similarly the money Internet block

How to kill a process running on particular port in Linux

  If port 8080 needs to be kill use below single command: kill -9 $(lsof -t -i:8080) Note: remove -9 from the command, if you don't want to kill the process violently. To list any process listening to the port 8080: lsof -i:8080 Use any port number that you want to kill.
