HOD (Hadoop on demand) works like this. You can do this type of thing a few
ways. You can do virtualization at the OS level. If you notice carefull most
tools take a --confdir argument. You could also setup all the configuration
files so that there are no port conflicts (essentially what HOD docs). This
is akin to running multiple instances of apache or myself on your nodes.
Resource management gets tricky as does the configuration files but there is
nothing techincally stopping anyone from doing this.
