If I were designing an environment from scratch I would take a serious
look at docker.  I've been using it recently for and,
whilst it still has some rough edges, I really like the concept of
compartmentalising functionality.  It's probably not the whole solution
(and in this case in particular it may not be any part of the solution)
but I predict a strong future for docker. (Ha! What do I know?)
