This is very hypothetical but still hard and not vague theoretic question I think: would future space colonies use some sort of network and hardware virtualization?

    $\begingroup$ Why would they? Why wouldn't they? There might be an interesting question in here. Please share your thoughts with us. $\endgroup$ – Philipp Feb 11 at 16:59

    $\begingroup$ I think, offline syncing protocols will have a rebirth. Network was developed to a way, that sometimes it is easier to sent data to the next desk through U.S. server farms. However, this won't work for the Mars. There is no way to step over the speed of light. Thus, there will be probably local clouds, and they will sync offline. $\endgroup$ – peterh Feb 11 at 18:07

    $\begingroup$ Seeing as the first space colony on mars will likely be some sort of singular dome or singular building... I'm going to guess the first cloud will just be a computer. Once they get two computers, technically the Mars internet would consist of two computers linked over what would likely be a LAN. $\endgroup$ – Magic Octopus Urn yesterday
