Default FreeBSD and Cloud Computing

Hello All...

I was doing some searching on Cloud Computing and after a few minutes was looking to see if FreeBSD was in the game. I cannot find any references so far in my short search except to see that the Open Source "Cloud Computing" software is using a license similar to FreeBSD license.

Does anyone know of any work being done to enable FreeBSD (or any BSD OS) as a host or serving member in a Cloud Computing scenario(grid).

Here are some links that I have found related to Open Source efforts & Cloud Computing:

I have a feeling you are confusing "cloud computing" with "cluster computing".
