Windows and Linux Condor on a Single Machine
OeRC in conjunction with the University of Reading have developed the ability to deploy Linux based Condor instances on Windows machines using the lightweight CoLinux kernel for Windows. The novel msi installer automatically detects the memory and network configuration of the host and configures the guest OS accordingly. This configuration allows the whole Linux system to appear as a Windows service which only requires a handful of ports and no extra dedicated network interfaces. When combined with a standard Windows Condor install this allows the creation of very flexible Condor pools.
