It's really good feature, therefore I'm asking about it. Once Proxmox droped OpenVZ and started using LXC, may be it's time to add native docker support?I think supporting native docker will give Proxmox another boost, because it already can use LXC and KVM.
have you tried LXC? It is very fast .I'm going to find out what happens if I just install Docker on one of my bare-metal proxmox hosts, by adding the Debian Jessie apt repository and just installing it that way..
I know it would be a safer move to just run it in a KVM guest, but bare metal performance would be great to get more bang for the buck from a proxmox host .. bad idea? Who knows
have you tried LXC? It is very fast .
since the 90's we have used vservers, then openvz and now lxc. they are all close to bare metal speed. LXC looks to be future proof as no special kernel is needed.
.... It is much harder to control layer 3 in a KVM VM then in a container.
But What I am asking is if I can also run Docker on the host O.S.
SO you can run Docker inside a KVM machine no problem of course but then it's not bare metal.
RobFantini said:could you give an example of ' control layer 3' ? like which service or application could use it.
Docker and kubernetes run perfectly inside a VM, so there is no real value to integrate that into proxmox itself.
