Standards for provisioning of VMs and physical hosts.

Alpine Linux

Our standard loadout uses Alpine Linux for all hosts and guests.

Physical hosts

VM hosts

Our current VM hosts won't scale much further. We need to figure out a better hardware loadout for these going forward.

High performance VM hosts

For performance critical services (presently only demands this), we do have a standard loadout:

This is spec'ed to CPU and I/O intensive workloads.

Build hosts uses dedicated build runners. Our current standard is:

This configuration supports up to 16 parallel build slots.

Virtual machines

There is no standard loadout - tune the specifications for the task at hand. Generally limit 1 VM == 1 service, and tune accordingly.
