Project Release Information
Fixes were made for the installation ISO. Minor fixes were made for home volume mounting. New 64-bit virtual machines are available. The user guide was updated.
The installer was improved with a new xosautoconfig tool to greatly simply and automate installation of XtreemOS instances. XtreemFS is at version 1.2, which has a number of new features, along with enhanced performance and stability. XtreemOS MD (Mobile Device) is a new version that integrates XtreemOS on Internet Tablets. Virtual Nodes is a framework to provide fault tolerance for grid applications. XOSSAGA lets you run SAGA compliant applications on top of XtreemOS unmodified.
The overall objective of the XtreemOS project is the design, implementation, evaluation, and distribution of a grid operating system (called XtreemOS) with native support for virtual organizations (VO). XtreemOS is capable of running on a wide range of underlying platforms, from clusters to mobiles. It is based on Mandriva Linux, with support to come for other distributions later.
