That works also. one issue we would face is storing the xen guest images.
that will get big fast. But i do really like the idea. we could do
something to help us manage bottlenecks also. bring up an app server image
when needed and some quick configuration we have a new app server. or proxy
or any of our other services.
One of the downsides of file based images is I/O performance, right?
Won't that have an adverse effect on the builders versus LVM?
I do like the idea of using more Xen Guests for some of the flexibility
it could give us. Figuring out how to make it work well for our
infrastructure is most likely worth the time.
