Owen Taylor (formerly) of GigaSpaces has put together an excellent proof of concept using GigaSpaces XAP and Sun Grid Engine. Using Sun Grid Engine, the PoC is able to grow and shrink the size of the GigaSpaces cluster dynamically according to changing load conditions. The PoC monitors GigaSpaces via JMX and then uses DRMAA to submit new instances to SGE or stop existing ones. Read more about it.
