Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by hogstrom:

  This proposal seeks to create a top-level Apache Software Foundation project to continue
the development and advancement of the Virtual Computing Lab open-source framework.  This
project is primarily concerned with providing a framework for hosting virtual server instances.
 These instances can contain a variety of application types.  This implementation is in use
at North Carolina State University to facilitate efficient use of their computing infrastructure
using virtualization technologies.   It has broad backing from the existing contributors to
the North Carolina State University Virtual Computing Lab as well as interest from a variety
of outside organizations.
+ The current participants are interested in expanding the usage of this platform to include
multiple target hypervisors as well as enhance tooling for creating and managing virtual machine
images.  A partial list of additional enhancements includes image management for storing and
archiving large number of images.
  We thank you for your consideration.
  Key Features & Goals
-  *  A REST driven framework for managing virtual computing resources.
   *  Scheduling server resources in a virtualized environment to improve hardware and software
   *  Expand supported hypervisors to include additional machine architectures.
   *  Security support for multiple roles in managing and gaining access to Cloud resources.
   *  Tools to create images to be hosted in the virtual infrastructure.
+  *  To construct a REST driven framework for managing virtual computing resources.
