There is a couple of cheap ways of doing this. First, download the free
version of VMWare ESXi and partition your hardware. Another is to
install VirtualBox, a Type-2 HyperVisor.

Depending on what you consider a cloud, take a look at Hadoop. Hadoop
isn't partitioning hardware but Hadoop and the applications that run on
top of Hadoop can give you an interesting view of these technologies and
how they can be applied to cloudy data.

As for how to get data into/out-of the cloud, let me know how that
works. :)
