Hi, Rayson.

My understanding is that SGE would be used for instantiating machine
images as needed in some cloud that supports necessary APIs for
machine instantiation.  Eucalyptus would simply serve as the platform
supplying that API for the actual instantiation and would not do any
scheduling.  Maybe I am misunderstanding something here, though.
