I'm starting a SaaS and just purchased a medium server (32gig ram, 1 xeon processor) - would it make sense for me to install openstack? Eg. when I want to grow later and add more servers?

My first thought was to just run VM's using esxi? (I would need around 8 VM's for my basis configuration)

You may want to get in touch with the openstack-operators mailing list to have such discussion. This site is not very good at engaging in wider conversations.

Would consider oVirt 3.4 ( or 3.3 ) & CentOS 6.5. oVirt 3.3.2 allowed AIO (all in one). I am not sure about 3.4. View Up and Running with oVirt 3.4 . Qemu would work directly with glusterfs 3.4.2 volumes. Spice is 100% functional right now. Painless, fast and relatively easy to maintain ( vs RDO Havana multi-node deployment ). Personally , worked with oVirt 3.3.2 on F19 Cluster. Adding new host was not a problem. View oVirt 3.3 & 3.3.1 & 3.3.2 hackery on Fedora 19. oVirt is open source solution ( version doesn't matter). Would also expect you to move to cluster solution anyway ( 8 VMs on 1 Xeon will make you unhappy with esxi, Openstack RDO Havana ,Ovirt 3.X,XenServer 6.X and so on)
