We will demonstrate and present the system administration and performance advantages that can be delivered by the GridCentric Copper virtualization platform.

This will include demonstrations of autoconfigured virtual clusters implementing a wide variety of distributed applications from grid queueing to distributed databases to load-balanced webservers.

Demonstration will also include dynamic, instant resizing of virtual clusters by live-cloning new auto-configured virtual machines in seconds, enabling distributed applications to dynamically scale from one virtual machine to many in a few seconds.
