I was indeed suggesting a single VM dedicated to storing anything php
with apache and the db being it's own VM.

Maybe a dedicated Postgres VM would be in order then. I did notice that
Drupal's maintenance of postgres backend has been subpar compared to
MySQL so I doubt those should be moved but wiki instances sounds great.

To clear up confusion estimated disk space:
osl1 - 730 GB (Before formatting)
osl2 - 1.17 TB (Before formatting)
So only a difference of about 500 GB between machines, both will have
ample space.
