There's a lot to be said for bringing up 3 or 4 virtualbox or vmware VMs 
and playing with that locally, as it does make sure that you have 
distribution right. CPU performance on VMs is pretty good, it's only 
disk IO that (currently) suffers.

I've been doing some work on GUIs/tooling too; this is something that 
could really front end what whirr does, though it also needs a 
cross-infrastructure HA story for managing the persistent data the 
tooling needs too -user accounts, current set of machines, etc etc.
