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