StratusLab has released the first open-source cloud solution designed for the grid.

The StratusLab project has released the first version of its cloud computing software, which aims to provide a full cloud solution for grid and cluster computing.

The release is a technology preview (beta test) and not production-ready yet, but it will give system administrators and users a chance to try out the new features of what will become an integrated solution for cloud management and running grid services within clouds.

The software is based on the OpenNebula open-source toolkit for cloud computing management and can be used as an interface for managing cloud sites. It also provides a range of tools and services specifically designed to facilitate integration of cloud and grid technologies. These include automatic configuration of sites and integration with fabric management tools such as the widely used “Quattor” toolkit, hopefully easing deployment of clouds within existing infrastructures.
