re: Cloudius Takes On Linux As Cloud OS
Laurie, not exactly. Cloudius is happy to run on top of KVM, or in the future, VMware's ESX Server as the operating system in the virtual machine. Each virtual machine needs one to manage the application. But OSv will do so in a way that's more efficient than today's x86 operating systems, yielding some responsibilities to other parts of the stack when it makes sense to do so. This would make it easier to replicate the virtual machine also. It's a great idea, not yet proven in customer settings.
