This is something I have looked into a little, but not enough to really say
much yet. I support a group that is very interested. I am also looking into
OpenNebula, since it also integrates with SGE somewhat to manage
Xen, VMWare and KVM images as well as Eucalyptus like cloud images.
One advantage is that once the "job" terminates, the image is still retained
as opposed to getting deleted.

The OpenNebula documentation has very good examples regarding using
SGE to dynamically manage your cloud.
