One of my friends mentioned Docker https://www.docker.io/
Looks pretty interesting.
Could it have applications in moving HPC applications from in-house setups
to the cloud.

Yeah, I know yet another configuration management/machine setup tool might
be a bit boring,
but I do see that moving HPC beyond the traditional 'install a software
package. Get your local guru to make
sure it runs with your version of compiler/MPI/... yadda' then 'install the
next version' is going to be limited eventually.
