The aim of this project was originally to "identify, and deploy, suitable technology for hosting our virtual servers for the next five, or so, years". The first stage, identifying a suitable technology, produced a report recommending a hybrid approach of using the IS service for highly critical services and a local KVM based service for other services. However, at the time of writing the report, KVM proved to be insufficiently stable in our then current server platform (SL5) and a decision was taken to defer deploying KVM until LCFG was ported to SL6. The project entry for the KVM deployment project is 202.
