EVGM 2007
1st IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on End-to-end Virtualization and
Grid Management
San José, California, USA - held as part of Manweek 2007
October 29 - November 2, 2007

Virtualization allows layer n (upper layer) to function independently
and effectively without being intrinsically tied to layer n-1 (lower
layer). In OS virtualization, guest operating systems are isolated from
physical computational resources. In server virtualization, application
servers are isolated from physical server resources. In network
virtualization, network services or applications are isolated from
physical network resources. One of the major features of Grids is the
sharing of heterogeneous resources, which can be facilitated by various
levels of virtualization. In other words, Grids should provide holistic
or end-to-end virtualization. It is obvious that proper resource
management is key to providing effective virtualization. However,
resource management for virtualization is a challenge (as opposed to
typical resource management) in that there is no trivial way of
virtualizing resources and presenting virtualized resources to the upper
layers. It is even a bigger challenge when end-to-end (E2E)
virtualization is considered, for example, when OS and server
virtualization interplay with storage and network virtualization for
providing an effective E2E virtualized environment.

This workshop will offer a unique opportunity for researchers and
practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences on problems, challenges,
solutions and potential future research, as well as development issues,
in this new field of E2E Virtualization and Grid Management. In addition
to paper presentations, the workshop provides an intimate setting for
discussion and debate through panels and group work.

The authors are encouraged to submit original papers on topics related
to the concepts described above, including, but not limited to:
# OS resource management for virtualization (OS Virtualization)
# Server resource management for virtualization (Server
# Application resource management for virtualization (Application
# Storage resource management for virtualization (Storage
# Network resource management for virtualization (Network
# Network Management resource management for virtualization (NM
# Heterogeneous Grid VO resource management for virtualization (Grid
# Interplay of various virtualization layers
# Virtual resource scheduling
# Virtual resource discovery
# Virtual resource monitoring
# Virtualization in clusters and high-performance computing
# Virtualization for ERP, CRM, Healthcare, Financial applications
