I am using LXD mantually , and most of light weight LXD GUI admins are unmaintained , so i am thinking about going heavyweight and use OpenStack. I had tried openstack on KVM with KVM instances … very high resource consumption.
I read a few here and there , mostly outdated blogs where Openstack used LXD containers instances instead of KVM.
Is there any good guide regarding that ? had anyone tried? I am going to do that on new server setup.
I don’t think the nova LXD integration is supported anymore.
Ah , thats sad , what happened with openstack ? A quick glance seems that they rolled their own Container manager called ZUN . And there is another thing called Magnum which supports Docker Swarm/Kubernetes .
All LXD need to shine over alternatives like openstack / nebula is to have a good managment UI.
everything else can be done with juju + lxd / ansible + lxd
LXD is a lot more lighterweight than competaitors and it gets things done.
@sean i had checked around nova-lxd repos and all of them (one on launchpad and one on their home repo) are dead , no upates since 2018 , even bug tracker oly have 40 bugs and 3 new bugs are 2019 . so it seems no one use it.
Furthur research show that LXD effort was abandoned and they are working on ZUN , but Libvirt supports LXD and can be configured in OpenStack with it.
