[sepia] cloud usage audit

Hi David, everyone,

Sometime soon I'm hoping we can take a careful look at what cloud 
resources we're using (at OVH or elsewhere) so we can (1) see what there 
is, (2) see if it is all necessary or if some of it can be scaled back, 
and (3) get a handle on what the underlying requirements are.

A few different organizations have suggested that they can donate some 
cloud resources.  Any VMs we can shift over to those other clouds would 
let us reduce our costs (or get more work done).  The first step is to see 
what we have and have a clear set of requirements to share so we know what 
is involved to make use of those resources!

Among other things, I have a suspicion that the teuthology worker nodes on 
OVH are underutilized.  Maybe we can scale that back, or figure out a way 
to scale up/down on demand?  It's expensive, and we're about to have a lot 
more eyes on the spend and questions about what is/isn't necessary than we 
have now :).
