Both!  So...currently it looks like we're provisioning 2G of swap,
and the rest XFS / at over 400GB.

What I want is to be able to use most of this as tmpfs in some
of the workloads.

We can do this by tweaking the kickstart to use a smaller / that
is configured to auto-grow.

One alternative is to mix in some CentOS Atomic Host, which
are pre-configured in very similar way.

Yes.  Related to all of this, I'm guessing that a lot of the workloads (probably
especially CentOS 6/5) could be moved underneath Docker inside an
Atomic/OpenShift cluster, rather than needing a full baremetal node.
