Quite so. My master backend lives in a VM on my file server. It's a big ugly
beast, but it also has the hot-swap racks and such to make maintence easy. 8
total drive bays with 4 more planned when I get money to order the drives.
Primary OS is OpenSolaris as I wanted ZFS. The VM is running Ubuntu 9.10
with Myth and the netboot server. The Frontends are diskless. If I were to
buy the Revo boxes, I'd remove the HDD and netboot them. The HDD would
become a backup tape. :)
