Docker or kubernetes??? Running simultaneously two OS’s

Mon Aug 02, 2021 7:52 pm

So, I am trying to brainstorm the best way to simultaneously run two operating systems in the background at the same time on the rpi4. I want to basically run a computing heavy OS and a storage heavy OS at the same time on the same rpi. (Just as an example, like running an OS that can run folding@home, and a crypto node OS like Rokos OS).
1. Which OS or containerizing program can achieve this?
2. If I were to scale this to multiple rpi’s (all running two unique OS’s not the same as the two listed above), should I cluster them together to share resources? Or keep them as separate machines?
3. If I keep them as separate machines, is there any reason to Ethernet them together, or should I keep them wired completely separately? (I ask because whether this project becomes a cluster or not, I am building it as if it looked like a cluster). The build I have in mind just looks cool, whether is functions as a cluster or not.

Containers do process isolation. All containers use the kernel of the host. To run an entire OS in isolation you need a virtual machine.
