During today's RDO meeting, I had the idea of having a pre-baked image with the basic setup (base CentOS + configured repos, maybe some documentation included) in TryStack or a cloud provider that would like to help us during the test day. Then, each tester could create a VM in that environment and run their own test scenario.

Thinking of it, it requires:

- A prepared image (not a big deal, we could do it)
- A public cloud with enough resources for the test days, and enough security measures to prevent abuse
- Anything else?
