Managing your Virtual Data Center with openQRM

Kris has written a neat and concise introduction to what openQRM can do. I have chosen openQRM as a provisioning tool for our project in Africa. This is amazing and what it all can do is absolutely mind blowing!

Anyways an excerpt...

openQRM, which just reached version 3.1, is an open source cluster resource management platform for physical and virtual data centers. In a previous life it was a proprietary project. Now it's open source and is succeeding in integrating different leading open source projects into one console. With a pluggable architecture, there is more to come. I've called it "cluster resource management," but it's really a platform to manage your infrastructure.

Whether you are deploying Xen, Qemu, VMWare, or even just physical machines, openQRM can help you manage your environment.

and they are also working for plugins for Microsoft Virtual Server, so don't lose heart there.

Excited? Then download our ready-to-use data center openQRM appliance with FC5 and Centos 4 images now! Just search Google for "openqrm appliance" and you'll find the link
