Subject Re: Service Offering documentation

  Dear Ron,

  I suggest you to read this document: 
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/GPU+and+vGPU+support+for+CloudStack+Guest+VMs

[1]. I have tested pass-through mode with XenServer 6.2 and can give 
probably a bit more information if you need. The reference document is 
good indeed, so you probably do not need my comments :)

  Regards,

  Vadim.
