A Hyper driver in Nova

Registered by Peng Zhao on 2015-06-19

Nova currently supports Docker with nova-docker driver. The difference between LXC and VM makes the driver hard to maintain a unified model in Nova.

Hyper is a hypervisor-based Docker runtime. It allows to run any Docker images with any hypervisor. Given its hypervisor nature, Hyper makes it way easier and straightforward to support Docker in Nova.

Whiteboard

This would require a nova-spec to be approved, but looks like it is out of scope for Nova:

It feels like it would be better integrated into Magnum. --johnthetubaguy 22nd June 2015
