My conclusion from these articles is, that lightweigt servers are a key point to this microservice architecture. Just to learn how tiny such a OS could be, i will try to install CoreOS inside virtualbox.
There is an easy way to get CoreOS running ("booting CoreOS container linux from ISO"), but there some limitations stated on the CoreOS website:
- There is no straightforward way to provide an Ignition config.
- A mininum of 1024M of RAM is required to boot Container Linux via ISO.
How to get from this point to a installed operating system on disk, i will show in a following posting.
