My home server, and my other box hosting https://sysrich.co.uk are both in need of a bit of a refresh
While I could be nice and conservative and pick an openSUSE regular release, I'm actually considering using openSUSE Tumbleweed, and fully embracing the 'Servers as Cattle' concept
Starting with a Tumbleweed BaseOS, probably hosting nothing more than HA Proxy and Salt
Salt should be able to provide all the orchestration I need for creating VMs and managing them, both in terms of 'one shot' commands and mandatory 'states', keeping everything updated all the time
HA Proxy should be all I need to route everything around to the VMs, especially as I'll be limited in available IPv4 addresses,especially for my home server.
Will be interesting to see if our Rolling Release really is a crazy idea for a server, or if I'll find myself wanting something more stable.
