    Newbie question - combine multiple physical machines into one virtual machine

    lenrok Lurker


      As I am not quite sure where to post this question - I will start here.


      I am quite new to vmware ecosystem - and I feel this question might sounds silly - but I need to ask.


      Is it possible to combine N physical machines (for example two separate standalones PC machines - each one 1 pCPU) into one virtual machines containing 2 vCPU?

      Is there any feature in vmware ecosystem which enables some 'cloud computing' layer? [so that applications can be just simply multithreaded - and gain advantage from multiple processors]

      If yes - any start point for reading?


      Or do I have to create N virtual machines (at least 1 per physical machine) and use additional layer in form of , for example openstack?
