We only use Kolla images to deploy. And Wallaby Kolla is on Buster. 
Linaro cloud is on Ussuri still iirc.

Doing setup using distro packages is something we had during Liberty 
times. Then moved to some weird in-house solution and then to Kolla 
containers (using source).

All our setup are done with Kolla containers.

Kevin Zhao (cc:) would probably be better on hardware recommendations. I 
mostly complain that we still use v8.0 (2012 tech) ones ;D
