Still a newbie in HPC, in the first stages of building a Beowulf cluster (8
nodes).

I wonder if anybody out there has used Linux virtual machines in the head
node, just to be able to experiment with different configurations &
deployments and jump back without much effort if things go bad. Considering
(out of experience in desktop) VMWare or Sun Virtualbox. Any hints, comments
?
