The way to resolve that would be to request the instances from Duffy,
and then reprovision as needed. that way you own the timelag and process
to provision the box ( we can help, ofcourse ). Rather than needing a
systemside / system-wide change in the base layer.

ofcourse, that depends on what you are testing. If perf becomes a thing,
then you certainly dont want to go down that route.
