I know there was some discussion of this previously, and I wanted to
point out this update
Interesting that the AUFS dependence is now not blocking things.
Hopefully I'll get a chance to play with it in a few weeks in an HPC
context, to see what the container performance cost is (if anything).
Hopefully quite low.
If someone has already done this, please post a link.
This is an OS level virtual system. Not a hypervisor, or a paravisor,
so it *should*, in theory, be lower latency. It looks like we can
generate Docker files trivially from a machine specification in Tiburon,
though we are very JSON centric these days.
