Virtualization and Cloud technology, having long been flourishing in academia and the private sector, are finally entering into traditional HPC centers as means of ensuring reliable operation, improving efficiency and accommodating the needs of new communities within computational science. Apart from overcoming the prejudice about performance loss ascribed to virtualization, challenges include integration of CPU and network virtualization, ensuring fast access to storage, and management of systems.

This BoF will assemble a panel of experts, which will each give a short introductory statement and proceed to discuss the state of the art, challenges, technology options and requirements with the audience.
