For example i have a shared hosting server on bare metal which it's resources going to full . I don't want to upgrade the hardware to new one be cause i have several unused servers same as this one . Also creating new server beside this one is not an option because i have to buy new software license for new servers . right now i have "Unlimited domains license" .

Assume i have 5 same servers each one 8 cpu , 32GB Ram . is it possible to have a strong virtual system with ~40 cpu , ~160GB and install my license on that ?

Note: I don't want clustering by that mean . i just want to install plain windows server or ubuntu server on that strong virtual system and easily extend it .

If I understand correctly what you have in mind, OpenStack cannot help you in this.

So the maximum resources each virtual may have is resources of one server ?

If by resources you mean processors and ram, I think so. I don't know of any way for "normal" applications to spread tasks/processes to processors across different machines communicating by a simple ethernet network
