Virtualization, Containerization, or None

We need to decide about Virtualization and Containerization plans.

  • OSGeo6 was made without either in part because updating 4 OS was a lot of work.
  • Hardware is somewhat dependent on the solution. Ganeti or Openstack expect lots of cheap machines (3+) to work well. Redundancy is across machines instead of within machine.
  • It should be noted in all virtualization cases we plan to use KVM with LVM based images - Ganeti/Openstack/Libvirt are a management layer on top.
    1. Hardware Option 1
    2. Hardware Option 2
    3. Hosting Option: OSUOSL
