I am curious about your thoughts and ideas about this project. I would not be able to do this myself but it might be something worth looking into. I have read talk about seperating the individual servers in order to move away from having a LAMP server. The pro's of this move is very apparent. I would like to take that idea one more step and make the install process easy. Using Xen we would be able to create virtual machines and be able to accomplish the same security goal. Each server would be running under its own operating system. This would limit the risk to the system if one of the server software tools we are using becomes exploited. we would need to provide a program on each comptuer to allow them to talk to eachother but this shouldn't be difficult. i believe work is already underway for this. Xen might even provide a tool that could accomplish this for us but I am not positive. The overhead of the VM's under Xen should be minimal. Inorder to make this easier to install I would like to create an install disk that would automate this process. Users would be able to simple place the disk into the server, answer a few questions, and then let the process run. Once it is complete his server is fully set up and ready to go. Should not be to hard to accomplish if we piggy back off of debian or other linux distro. This idea might be more of an idea for the buisness side of this opensource product. Please tell me what your thoughts and ideas are for this. Negative and positive feedback...doesn't matter.
