Recently, Qlusters announced some of the progress it is making with openQRM, its open source systems management solution for virtual environments and data center automation. Since the product was launched in January, Qlusters has seen more than 17,000 downloads, and the number of active contributors to the project has doubled. It has also garnered some recognition in the form of achieving finalist level in three categories of SourceForge's first annual community Choice Awards, and was named "One to Watch" in a recent review of open source systems management solutions by Computer Business Review. In May Qlusters co-founded the Open Management Consortium, which seeks to establish conventions and standards to enable open source integration and interoperability. Qlusters launched this group along with five other companies, and there are now more than twenty members. The cofounders include Ayamon, Emu Software, Symbiot, Webmin, and Zenoss.
