One of the goals I had was to hopefully replace the single node jobs
with the multinode jobs because as you point out there is a lot of
redundancy and 2 VMs < 3 VMs. One of the prerequisites for this to
happen is to have an easy way to reproduce the multinode test envs using
something like vagrant. I have been meaning to work on that this cycle
but adding new cloud resources (and keeping existing resources happy)
have taken priority.
