Hi all,
i'm completely new to openstack but i started working on something 
similar to eucalyptus. In the coming months we will begin a project to 
bring our work on openstack and share it with you.

On Eucalyptus, we have worked to integrate the scheduler with Haizea and 
Sun Grid Engine. Sun Grid Engine was necessary for us because it is the 
internal scheduler in the cluster and must share resources with the 
cloud environment.

The idea is to make Haizea the scheduler for physical resources and 
queue, with the possibility to attach him an existing scheduler (Oracle 
Grid Engine, lfs and others) via plugin.

You think this might be interesting?
