The server will be used as a test/studybed for
The server will be based around a Xeon E5 10 core with 128GB ram.

Option 2:
Build server with CentOS 7.2 and deploy multiple ovirt instances on top of
Which will be the most stable versatile method?
If a GPU is used as a passthrough device can it be used on several vm's or

Is CentOS/RH the best platform for ovirt?
Is it okay/advisable to load the latest kernel, (4.8 ish), on to CentOS
before installing ovirt?

Any and all comments/advice welcome,
