Together, these layers create what we know as the system. Typical server hardware components include the following: processor; memory storage devices such as hard drives, floppy drives and CD/DVD drives; network adapters; peripheral connectors such as USB, serial and parallel ports, and video adapters. The software layer of the system is made up of the operating system, the applications and the device drivers that control the hardware components. The device drivers that are installed on the operating system normally create a one-to-one relationship between the hardware and the operating system controlling it.

This is because the software partitioning system has full control over those resources. Although this type of implementation is more difficult to write and support, it is not burdened by the overhead of another operating system, generally allowing more performance for each soft partition. VMware ESX Server is currently the most mature implementation of a natively installed software partitioning system for x86-based server architectures.

The serial port can be mapped to the host server’s serial port, and then make use of the host’s physically attached device(s). A virtual machine could therefore use a modem that is attached to its host. Additionally, a virtual serial port can be redirected to send its output to a file on the host server. This is useful when trying to capture the data that an application running in a virtual machine may send to the serial port.
