if everyone on this corner of the fediverse put all of our self-hosted server workloads into one collectively operated high availability cluster with bin packing and all the goodies I wonder how much excess capacity we'd find that we had available, even accounting for the redundancy necessary to achieve a true HA state for all our services :blobhyperthink:

(I am aware that "everyone in this corner of the fediverse" is not a meaningfully measurable sample group. You get my drift regardless.)

I mean, we are already sharing compute resources between our fediverse instances with little to no accountability as to quotas or resource management between us. if we formalized and generalized the setup, even in small pockets, there could be some very cool knock-on effects I'd suspect.
