Ehsan,

It would be better to ask xCAT related questions on the xcat-user list 
(xcat-u...@lists.sourceforge.net), but as far as I know, it can control 
bladecenters and anything that can be controlled via IPMI.

VCL only uses xCAT to do kickstart installs, and to capture and deploy images 
on bare metal systems.  It does not use any of xCAT's virtualization features.  
VCL does not officially support any other cluster management toolkits at this 
point.  You could write your own provisioning module to support whatever 
toolkit you would like.  I have heard of some work on a provisioning module to 
use Amazon EC2.
