Using KVM for virtual server setup

What best way to test a server setup than to just use a brand new machine dedicated for this purpose ? Unfortunately, not everyone has a spare computer dedicated to such activities. But there is at least one solution : use a virtual machine !

The virtualization solution I have been using is KVM, one of the most efficient ones.

New blog !

Welcome to my new blog ! I finally managed to setup an up-and-running home server.

Expect some weird stuff to be published here in a few days. As my job has something to do with computer science research (mainly, operational research, combinatorial optimization and parallelism), and some of my hobbies are programming and GNU/Linux system administration, you will find information about various home and work projects which sometimes may look cross-related.

See you in a near future.
