This is so nice. I tried it and succesfully created a test machine. It would be great if there is a provision to extend the lifetime of vm's beyond the time provided during creation. First I ran the ansible-playbook from the vm machine, then I realized that has to be executed from outside machine. May be we can mention that info in the doc.

Hello folks, 

Deepshikha did the work to make loaning a machine to running your regressions on them faster a while ago. I've tested them a few times today to confirm it works as expected. In the past, Softserve[1] machines would be a clean Centos 7 image. Now, we have an image with all the dependencies installed and *almost* setup to run regressions. It just needs a few steps run on them and we have a simplified playbook that will setup *just* those steps. This brings down the time from around 30 mins to setup a machine to less than 5 mins. The instructions[2] are on the softserve wiki for now, but will move to the site itself in the future. 

Please let us know if you face troubles by filing a bug.[3]
