Description

Motivation

After #80142 we can streamline and improve our datacenter management using cloud solutions

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: TBD

Ideas

In 2022-12 okurz had the opportunity to meet mflores, TL of SUSE EngInfra. Main takeaway for okurz regarding "move to cloud" are the following points:

  1. We already make use of public cloud where it makes sense, e.g. public-cloud specific testing as well as having cloud computing ressources connected to openqa.opensuse.org like ARM sponsored aarch64 ressources. We do not see it as cost-efficient to move more compute-heavy tasks, i.e. openQA workers, to the public cloud with the exception of temporary disaster-recovery scenarios
  2. We plan to follow the development of SUSE-internal cloud developments and plan to use such services whenever ready for the purposes of QE applications including openQA as well as other uses
  3. We are looking forward to learn about results from any experiments regarding more efficient datacenter management to apply ourselves, e.g. bare-metal provisioning
