  1. disable SWAP partition choice (make it optional)

    All other Public Cloud providers (AWS,GCP,Azure,DigitalOcean) are creating VM's without Swap partitions,
    if needed swap files can be created inside the VM.

  3. Gzip hourly database dumps immediately for reduced temp space and shorter runtime

    When the OnApp database grows large, the hourly dump (done by /onapp/onapp-cp-install/onapp-database-dump.sh) consumes more temp space than necessary. In my case, the uncompressed dump is around 1GB, and the compressed size is around 400MB. During the dump this will require a total of 1.4GB free space to accommodate the dump followed by the compression. By piping the dump directly into gzip, the space required during backups is reduced to the size of the compressed file. As a bonus, in my case, this cuts down the runtime of the script by about two minutes as well.

    The patch below is against…
