In case there is interest in using Xen with Grid computing I just wanted to forward information about work we are doing within the Globus project. The message below is the annoucement of our tech preview release which came out today.

-------- Original Message --------

The Workspace Project at ANL is happy to announce technology preview 1.1
release of the Workspace Service.

The Workspace Service allows an authorized Grid client to dynamically
deploy and manage workspaces on the Grid. A workspace is an abstraction
of an execution environment that captures its software configuration
aspects as well as the resource quota assigned to it. In this
implementation, workspaces are implemented as Xen virtual machines,
deployed and managed based on WSRF protocols as implemented in Globus
Toolkit 4.

This release has a technology preview status: both interfaces and
implementation are likely to change to some extent. Information about
the project, software downloads, documentation and instructions on how
to join the workspace support list can be found at:

A list of changes since last release is available at:

We welcome comments, feedback, and bug reports, even though the support
we can offer at this time is limitited. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Kate on behalf of the Workspace team
