I'm just getting into beowulf so please excuse my ignorance. Im
interested in finding out about virtualisation on beowulf. The pros
and cons, what software can be used and the limitations of such

Can a beowulf cluster be applied to cloud computing? Will it run xen
or vmware or would an operating system-level virtualization package
such as open VZ be more suitable.

most of all, what's scalable?

Many Thanks,
Andrew Holway
