[Openstack-operators] Analogs of EC2 dedicated instances & dedicated hosts?

Hi All,

What mechanisms does OpenStack provide that would enable me to implement behaviors analogous to AWS EC2 dedicated instances and dedicated hosts?

*         Dedicated instances:  an OpenStack tenant can deploy VM instances that are guaranteed to not share a compute host with any other tenant (for example, as the tenant I want physical segregation of my compute).

*         Dedicated hosts: goes beyond dedicated instances, allowing an OpenStack tenant to explicitly place only specific VM instances onto the same compute host (for example, as the tenant I want to place VMs foo and bar onto the same compute host to share a software license that is licensed per host).
