Have you checked out openxvm.org recently. We have recently added a couple candidate projects aimed at extending the functional reach of Sun xVM Ops Center and enable interoperability with other popular solutions, particularly in the HPC space.
Let me briefly introduce these two integration projects.
- Integration of Sun Grid Engine (SGE) and Sun xVM Ops Center. SGE is based on the open source Grid Engine project that provides policy-based workload management and dynamic provisioning of application workloads. Grid Engine open source software is used at thousands of HPC sites worldwide.
- Integration of Rocks and Sun xVM Ops Center. Rocks is an open source Linux cluster distribution that enables end users to easily build computational clusters, grid endpoints and visualization tiled-display walls. Rocks' popularity in the HPC community is evidenced by several Rocks deployments around the world.
