Hi Thomas,

Did you consider using Debian and OCI [1] ? I've just deployed my 8th
cluster in production with it, this time using floating IP for routed
networks [2]. I'm of course biased in my answer because I'm the package
maintainer and the main author of OCI, but he... please give it a try!
One of the main point is that what happened with CentOS has no chance to
happen in Debian (no vendor lock-in).
