    I've been using Proxmox VE for about a year as well as CloudStack and Virtualbox, but I recent came across something quite new to me. Archipel Project, anyone use this? I'm really considering this to try out and see how I like it. It's quite different in that it talks over a XMPP server, the admin can even "chat" to the VMs and ask how they're doing. I'll post my thoughts when I get a few hours to test this out.

    I can't post links, but if you search for Archipel Project, it's the first link.

    Hmm... I thought about downloading this one... :eek:

    But honestly, it just looks like a fancy GUI to me. Doesn't seem to be anything there you can't do with VirtualBox if you're willing to get down and dirty with a command line and/or fiddle with its web interface (except - maybe - the (relatively) deep monitoring of the guest OS).

    10/10 for trying, though. :)

    It does look nice.

    It is an open source shot at Virtual Center?

    Certainly looks like one.
