Bastion/DHCP/DNS server option for Fusion HCI

I believe that the servers required for Fusion HCI installation should be offered as option of Fusion HCI. When building Fusion HCI environment, external server is requried for:

- DNS/DHCP server

- bastion server for application installation

- mgem tool (sometime)

- mirror repository

We are currently asking our customers to prepare a server for these purpose. but I hope to propose x86 server as an option for Fusion HCI.
