So I've been reading about this cloud thing. Basically from my understanding all it is, is a bunch of computers running virtual machines.
I've created a virtual machine in virtualBox and it uses; Ubuntu Server (latest) I removed mostly everything so now all it's got on it is mysql database server. I went ahead and gave it the database... everything works the way I want it to...
yes, I should probably just use simpleDB instead. For now let's just roll with a database instance. I just want to test how to get this working.
Now, I read somewhere ( I don't even know where I read this... just somewhere on the internets) I think that ubuntu uses KVM.
How would I go about converting? The computer that i'm messing with is a Windows pc.. I haven't found any decent tools to convert it with... the VMConvert was crap. Or atleast I couldn't find a convert (vdi) option.
or would I need to somehow upload my virtual machine to the server and do command line converting on it?
