Linux Nightlife Wants You to Come Out and Play

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux not only wants to dominate the Data Center and your Desktop but now it 
| wants your unused CPU power as well. Nightlife is a grid-based computing 
| effort that is Fedora Linux-specific.  


Red Hat’s PV drivers boosts performance of Windows, older Linux guests on
Xen-based RHEL 5

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat has significantly sped up the performance of Windows and Linux guests 
| running on its Xen-based Red Hat Enterprise 5 platform. 
| The Raleigh, NC software company released on May 20 paravirtualized drivers 
| that significantly improve the performance of older Red Hat Enterprise 3 and 
| 4 workloads on its current Linux platform.  



Opinion - The role of open source in grid computing: past, present and future

,----[ Quote ]
| To a significant extent, the benefits that we predicted for open source 
| release have indeed accrued: Globus software has been widely adopted, and 
| many groups are doing amazing things with it, building exciting applications, 
| powerful tools, and substantial infrastructures. (I can go on at tremendous 
| length on this topic, but I will restrain myself.)    


Open source grid computing takes off

,----[ Quote ]
| The Hadoop project is opening up a really interesting discussion around 
| computing scale. A few years ago I never would have imagined that the open 
| source world would be contributing software solutions like this to the 
| market. I don’t know why I had that perception, really. Perhaps all the 
| positioning by enterprise software companies to discredit open source 
| software started to sink in.     



XtreemOS, a Linux-based Operating System to support Virtual Organizations for
next generation Grids

,----[ Quote ]
| Based on Linux, XtreemOS will have 3 different versions capable of running on 
| single PCs, clusters and mobile devices and will provide for the Grid what an 
| operating system offers for a single computer: abstraction from the hardware 
| and secure resource sharing between different users.   


Living off the grid OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Visualize virtualization that goes beyond the usual hardware associated with 
| the term -- servers and storage, for example -- to encompass the whole set of  
| resources in a computing environment, including firewalls, databases, memory, 
| and CPUs, for example.  
| The benefits of a grid OS are considerable, allowing you to allocate more 
| computing power to an application in a heartbeat and with seamless effort, 
| for example.
