While I like being called a provider, I'm not really one. I was more trying to
find a use case for my closet cloud [1], and was volunteering to open that up
to external/infra use to provide dedicated hardware for consistent performance
testing. That's still an option, (I mean the boxes are just sitting there not
doing anything) and I'd gladly work with infra and keystone to get that
working. But, if mnaser and vexxhost have an alternative route with their real
capacity and modern hardware, that's probably a better route to go.
