Am I correct in assuming that the only installation methods for UCS are currently via the CD/ISO or by utilising the appliance VM ?
I have recently been doing a lot of testing with LXC containers. It seems to me that a headless server implementation like UCS would be a terrific candidate to run in such a containerized environment. But the current “supported” installation methods don’t really lend themselves to that as far as I can see.
Just wondering if any consideration has or is being given to running UCS in any form of container technology. I realise there is work going on with Docker, but it seems to me Docker is more aimed at running one or a few processes in a container. LXC would seem to be more of a “virtualization alternative” suited to running entire OS’s in containers.
Or to flip this on it’s head a bit, is any consideration being given to integrating LXC into UCS ? Most of what I already virtualize under UCS could be run more efficiently & at greater density in LXC.
Really interested to hear any comments & have a discussion around this.
