I would suggest against important new on container - while it's a pretty
nice machine for a 6 year old machine, it's a 6 year old machine, and
out of it's service contract. If it was to experience a hardware
failure, it might be out of service until we got a replacement server
donated/purchased and racked.

We do actually have two much newer and nicer machines that are not at
   dual-quad-core (E5420), 32 GB ram, 2x500GB sata drives (raid-1)
   dual-quad-core (E5420), 32 GB ram, 4x146 10k sas drives (raid-10) is currently hosting (virtualized) and; git currently has 20GB allocated to it, but that was
just some conversion tasks, it doesn't need nearly that much. We could
add an additional VM for something that was CPU/memory intensive but
without much IO load. is meant for database tasks. We got it for but that is no longer running, so right now
it is doing absolutely nothing. So, it would make a lot of sense to put
a bugzilla DB VM onto it.

First question about setting it up would be:

 Do we want to have a single big "" and host all the GNOME
 database needs on it, or do we want a VM specialized for bugzilla,
 and later add separate VM's for other database tasks.

That's all we'd really need to know to allocate an IP and do the initial
system image install. Then for actually doing the setup there would be
additional information needed - e.g., InnoDB vs. MyISAM.
