It would be interesting to have a lot of input on this survey if you have some time, it’s only a few questions.

Subject: Survey on use of virtualization in production grids

Hi all,

Apologies for the slightly off-topic post. I am giving presentations soon on the use of virtualization in production grids and was thinking it might be nice to have some data to present!

I have set up a survey on the usage of virtualization in production grids at

The survey will remain open until Friday August 29th. It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete, and I think the results should be quite interesting for our community. I get the impression virtualization usage has rocketed in the last year, but haven’t seen any figures on uptake to date.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone else who may be interested in responding.

If you have any comments, please feel free to email me.
