Virtues network is a testbed for research projects in Oulu university information processing and computer engineering laboratories. It provides functional network environment where researchers can develop and test their applications in public network. Network is scalable for different purposes and application uses.
Currently virtues network relies on server virtualization which adds redundancy and ease of management to the network. Physical hosts resources are divided to multiple virtual servers which can then be allocated to research project. Virtual servers can be used just as normal physical hosts.
