Is there an open-source virtualization product for the cloud?

Are there any open-source virtualization tools for hosting virtual servers in the cloud? Do they compare to commercial programs or are they still waiting to mature into something on which my business could rely?



Citrix just announced Project Olympus but I'm not sure it's ready yet.



Although it's free, it's technically not open-source, I have used (Sun) Oracle's VirtualBox with some success. It doesn't have a hypervisor, and is not cloud-based.
