A virtual network consists of many distributed virtual computers interconnected over a communication network of individual links, such as optical fibers or electrical conductors, for example. Each distributed virtual computer has at least two ports connected over respective links to other respective distributed virtual computers on the network. Each distributed virtual computer is connected to or resident within its own host, each host typically being a conventional computer such as a personal computer or a work station, for example, although at least one of the hosts may itself be another virtual computer. Each distributed virtual computer has reconfigurable logic elements such as an FPGA or an array of FPGAs.
