The main purpose of this project is to continue get acquainted with the use of virtual machines and cloud computing. Several aspects should be tested:
Software development projects are using gitlab repositories (mainly git.chalmers.se) for code verification, with spurious, but rather heavy use of regression testing / CI. In this project some of the CI capacity is provided with a cloud resource. A new test would be to run arm and ppc emulated builds using qemu on the virtual machine. It is already very convienient to run e.g. a FreeBSD machine as a small CI test.
Experiment monitoring (from outside the accelerator lab), is simplified by using an public-facing machine, with e.g. a webserver.
