We're experimenting with Xen for use in Grid computing where we need to
build a gatekeeper machine in front of various HPC clusters to run the
versions of Globus that the different grid projects need, along with
development versions. I think we're up to 7 at the moment, assuming
there's just a single cluster behind it.
Using Xen means we should be able to run this all on a single box, and so
far it's looking pretty solid (i.e. it works and we've not seen a crash,
asides from when someone tried something a little brave with LVM
snapshots, but that may not have been Xen related).
All good fun!
