Rocks Releases Version 5.0 Beta

rocksThe Rocks cluster development team has announced general availability of the Rocks cluster toolkit version 5.0 Beta.  The Rocks developers have been working day and night [well, maybe just nights] in order to include all sorts of new functionality in Rocks.  The biggest feature in version 5.0 is the addition of a Xen virtualization roll.  Cluster administrators will now be able to configure Xen virtual machine images on cluster just like any other compute appliance.

The Rocks core development is funded by a National Science Foundation Grant at the University of California San Diego.  For more info on Rocks version 5.0 Beta, read their release here.
