I've got a server running 24/7 with lots of resources left. I want to run a full Bitcoin node, but actually, I thought of running a few virtual machines on it (using virtualbox) and running a full Bitcoin node in each of them.
Obviously they'd all need to use different ports (which are to be forwarded to the particular VM LAN IPs by my router).
Will that work, i.e. would they be on different 'metric locations' in the Bitcoin network? (even though they have the same physical location and same IP of course)
Reason for this endeavour: being 'as connected as possible' to different parts of the network simultaneously, just as if I had multiple nodes running on different physical locations throughout the world.
