DO Ideas 2

Project Atomic - Docker - Centos - Fedora - scalable

we would like to see Project Atomic images available to provision droplets with, for docker deployments and openshift "gear" they are the way to go, the boot times are extremely fast compared to a full blown fedora or centos image, they are more secure and rolling updates using the os-tree model makes it a no brainer for large clusters. http://www.projectatomic.io/ the fedora images are ready, centos images will be ready when centos 7 releases.

Project Atomic is backed by RedHat enterprise linux and the Openshift cloud stack.

    As of 2017.03.05, there is now an API launchable version of Fedora Atomic 25 in "preview/beta" status. You can launch the 'fedora-25-x64-atomic' slug to access this image. Due to some outstanding merge requests DigitalOcean can't make this "official" from either DigitalOcean or Fedora. We would love early feedback though while we work out the final logistics.

    How about a more stable version of Atomic http://www.projectatomic.io/download/ ?

    I'm interested in Project Atomic-CentOS base images. I have a docker host with just two containerized applications and after logs built up for a while, it ran out of disk space on a 40GB host. I'm surprised at the bloat for such a simple setup. The overhead of the Docker host is completely unnecessary. I need a minimal Docker host OS. I'll try CoreOS, but I prefer CentOS.

    Is a CentOS Atomic image planned? I know Fedora Atomic is available but we need something more stable.

    And what about CentOS?

    +1 to this.

    I came looking to see if Fedora 25 atomic with cockpit was what you were using, but I guess not yet....

    For some reason, this is not letting me log in with my Digital Ocean account. I am a DO customer, my name is Thomas Cameron, and I am very much in favor of Atomic being available on DO.

    Yes, DIY lightweight openshift OS on DO will be really cool.

    Fedora Atomic would be so nice to have in DO. Not everyone wants to run Ubuntu or CoreOS and we have our reasons.

    CoreOS doesn't allow resource scheduling and it's developed and maintained by a startup.

    Ubuntu has too many idiosyncrasies: non-LTS kernel in a LTS release, upstart (when everyone is moving to systemd), auto starting services after an install, AppArmor vs SELinux.

    I am also interested in atomic and OpenShift V3. It will be very nice if it is will be in DO!

    I would like to see the atomic images supported as a start state too.

  • Jessica commented

    The new OpenShift V3 is being built on Atomic host as well

    Would be a interesting alternative to CoreOS on DO.

    I am also interested in using Project Atomic images on DigitalOcean. Please consider offering a basic image.
