Given recent issues with performance and mediawiki refactors on the cloud replicas it is been decided that we will move analytics jobs to a new set of labs replicas.
@Nuria wrongly though analytics had spare hosts we could use ready to be racked but we do not. We however have some budget to buy these hosts if needed. This ticket is to decide how the hardware comes to appear:
- does analytics new to order the new hardware for the replicas? If so please let us know
- does the SRE/DB team have any hardware we can use? I imagine this is a question for @mark
