The number of computational elements in massively scalable systems can easily reach several hundred of processors. The exploitation of such systems creates new challenges. The paper presents the contemporary technology of massively scalable computer systems configuration management. This problem has been put in context of modern hardware resources virtualization techniques. The paper refers to solutions provided in this area by SUN Microsystems to show real existing solutions which are used and practically tested by the authors of this paper.
