I am a long time *NIX operator/sysadmin with many years of keyboard time on RH, Yellow Dog, Fedora (I remember the Core wars), RHEL, CentOS and many others. I have a heavy focus in virtualization, both VMware and KVM/libvirt, and I believe containers and the openshift style infrastructure is the logical progression to my next level of education. Right?
But how do I do containers to get started right now, without spending a lot of time on what may become irrelevant tech (hello, docker swarm.)
Install Docker on my OS of choice
Deploy an Atomic VM
Deploy a Container Linux VM/iron machine
Patiently wait for FCOS to drop a beta
I surely can’t wait so long as that last point requires, but I’d rather not spend a lot of time figuring out RedHat Atmoic and os-tree if that is going to change drastically.
I know I’m asking about a lot of things that are currently in flux. I don’t really expect definitive answers, I’m hoping the folks here who know more and have walked these paths can provide some suggestions.
