Allow ability to not actually suspend hosts, but put them in a state where no VMs will be placed on them
The way that our infrastructure is set up does not respond kindly to host suspend/power off actions, but we want to be able to densify our current environment. We'd like the ability to enable "suspend host" such that we can operate efficiently on used hardware, and not actually suspend the hosts. Perhaps just make it much more expensive for VMs to live on it, such as with licensing control.
Edit: the limiting factor is that Turbo will only suspend/vacate a single host at a time in the realtime market. The goal is to allow for multiple suspend/provision actions.
