Just a repost of a blog entry originally published on Canonical's Blog.
A few weeks ago myself and Dustin Kirkland had the privilege of travelling to the Intel facility in Hillsboro, Oregon to work with Billy Cox, Rekha Raghu, Paul Guermonprez, Trevor Cooper and Kamal Natesan of Intel and Dan Nurmi and Neil Soman of Eucalyptus Systems and a few others on developing a proof of concept whitepaper on the use of Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud on Intel Xeon processors (Nehalem).
My colleague Thierry Carrez just posted a blog this weekend discussing the new autoregistration features of the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud that are coming up in Ubuntu 10.04LTS Server Edition.
