    Details

      Description

      Mender provides a docker update module. However, its implementation is basic and can be seen as a building block the users need to combine to implement their specific use-cases. This epic's goal is improving the Mender support for containerized workloads on devices.

      User value:

      • Out-of-the-box, production grade support for running containers at the edge
      • Decreased time-to-value when running containers at the edge

      Acceptance criteria:

      • Mender can be used to deploy and update containers to the devices
      • Mender integrates with Docker registries to pull images and package them as artifacts
      • Containerized workloads are:
        • tracked by Mender (inventory script) and visible in the Mender UI
        • monitored by Mender (e.g. spurious restarts, failures)
        • configurable by Mender (e.g. start/stop, restart, configure a container)
      • Comprehensive documentation is available to users to run containers on devices and controlling them with Mender

      Stretch goals:

      • It is possible to use delta updates with containers.
