What i intend to do is this:

1. capability to run FreeBSD as dom0 with Xen.
2. setup and run Eucalyptus on FreeBSD/dom0
3. run SaaS (storage as a service) solutions leveraged on BSD.
4. develop VMM orchestration solution.
5. Package the entire stuff.
6. Interested folks can build services/solutions on top of this
   infrastructure.

Legal
1-6 is all Open Source some BSD 2.0 and most of it ASL 2.0.

Open Source infrastructure leveraged on FreeBSD powers the cloud !


thanks
Saifi.
