Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-451) System VMs shouldn't be just Debian based
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 11:13:11 GMT
Wido den Hollander created CLOUDSTACK-451:

             Summary: System VMs shouldn't be just Debian based
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-451
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Wido den Hollander

This one is tied into: CLOUDSTACK-450

Currently our System VMs are a Debian based template which are pretty big.

If we abstract the way we talk to the System VM by adding an API it shouldn't matter anymore
which distro or OS will be running in there.

Some users might want to use a different distribution or build their own homebrew System VM
as long as they implement the API.

Most System VM tasks can be done in Read-Only mode as well, the filesystem of the System VM
doesn't need to be R/W, which would make them more robust.

In the end a System VM shouldn't have to be bigger then something like 50MB when stripped

This issue is here to raise awareness that this has to be addressed at some point.
