    We do a lot with diskless blades. Basically cpu(s), memory, and network
    ports.

    For this case, cpu, memory, and network controllers are sufficient.
    Even just cpu gets you a long way, since mostly we're not IO-intensive
    and we generally have a pretty good idea of memory consumption.
