Actualy, no. The first thing the newly formed team has
to decide on, is how the machine should be installed.
Vritual servers are one possibility that has been discussed,
but it is up to the team to decide.

Anyways, any concidered solution has to fullfill 3 criteria:
* Secure enough so any break in is unlikely
* Does not restrict the regular users too much
* Can be handled by the admin team

Of course, these are abolutely subjective and
cannot be measured in hard numbers.
