Elliot Jaffe, Danny Bickson, and Scott Kirkpatrick, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel
We have pioneered the deployment of EverLab, a production level
private PlanetLab system using high-end clusters spread over Europe.
EverLab supports both experimentation and computational work,
incorporating many of the features found on Grid systems. This paper
