You could try using StarWind VSAN Free instead XOSAN for hyperconvergence. Even though they say they do not officially support Xen hyperconverged, it should be technically possible, I believe.

RE: Upgrading Fedora 22 to 27
the key import command is
sudo rpm --import keyfilenamegoeshere
run it from the directory you saved the key file to, the F27 key won't exist on your system since it is over 3 versions old
you should then be able to upgrade from Fedora 22 straight to Fedora 27 using the dnf system upgrade tool. you may however need to add the commands --allowerasing and --nogpgcheck (read the notes in the wiki regarding the obvious security risk of doing this, it's your choice entirely to use it or not) if errors still persist. check carefully what packages are preventing the upgrade though in the output from the commands run
RE: Food for thought: Fixing an over-engineered environment
IMHO, dispersing the storage between the hosts and configuring data replication between them would be the best option.
Creating several tiers for the migration of your VMs is always nice to have - downtime strikes unexpectedly.
RE: FTP download from a Host with poor connectivity
It would also be possible to break down the files with WinSCP and transfer them with FileZilla.
Get WinSCP: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php - "WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client, FTP client, WebDAV client and SCP client for Windows."
Add a Custom Command:
Code: rar a -r -m0 -v20m "!.rar" "!"
'Remote Command', 'Apply to Directories'... Add the Custom Commands toolbar.
This command will use Rar (install it on your server) to spit the file(s)/directory into 20mb numbered rar files using no compression, therefore very quickly. If you multi-select files, they'll each have their own multi-part rar file, nice.
We will still use Filezilla for transferring the files, using Simultaneous Transfers as it's by far the nicest/best working FTP client out there (even despite this missing, much needed functionality).
So now the every-day steps are:
- Start WinSCP
- Log in to the server
- Browse to the file(s)
- Select them
- Click on the custom command's toolbar button ... it then gets to work processing (seconds or a minute perhaps)...
- Start Filesilla
- Log in to the server
8 ) Browse to the file(s) and the multi-part rars
- Select the rars
- Download them to the local machine ... watching the simultaneous transfers chomping thru the data!
- Unrar the local rar files when completed
- Delete the rar files from the remote server using WinSCP as it does it quicker.

The implementation of an Azure Stack would be something to get our heads around for the time being.
