Description MetaCentrum, the Czech national grid initiative, has introduced a new public service ``virtual cluster'' which turns the virtualized infrastructure into end user service. Virtual cluster service provides an illusion of totally dedicated clusters running on a shared infrastructure under complete user control, including administrator access and user specified application environment. Virtual machines and clusters are handled in a way similar to ordinary computation jobs, planned for batch or interactive processing.
