      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.


Running Docker on Armbian

1 post in this topic

I am using Armbian for my head-less servers. Currently this setup is running on a Raspberry Pi 1, a Raspberry Pi 2 and a Olimex A20-OLinuXino-LIME.

Installation is quite simple.

  1. Install dependencies
    apt-get install -y apt-transport-https


  2. Add respository key
    wget -q https://packagecloud.io/gpg.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -


  3. Add repository
    echo 'deb https://packagecloud.io/Hypriot/Schatzkiste/debian/ jessie main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hypriot.list
    apt-get update


  4. Install Hypriot 
    apt-get install -y docker-hypriot
    systemctl enable docker


Afterwards docker is ready to use.

You can test your docker installation:

      The revision 1.2 of the Raspberry Pi 2 has now a BCM2837 CPU with up to 900 MHz and includes 1 GB RAM.
      Looking at the Raspberry Pi 3 with it's 1.2 GHz, the main difference between them is the the WiFi and Bluetooth module.
      Some might think that this is a stupid idea, but their are some advantages:
      RP2 on the same 64bit plattform RP2 with the same amount of RAM RP3 as an upgrade if someone needs Wifi and/or Blueooth (and UART issues) For me the Raspberry Pi 3 had two major issues:
      Heat - looks like the > 1 Ghz need active cooling First on 64 bit - not that good for software support Both checked with the new revision of the Raspberry Pi 2.

      Resin.io is a fork of the Yocto-based OS and is now able to run Docker containers on Linux IoT devices.
      Resin known for their Linux/Javascript-based IoT framework forked their Linux OS behind the framework as an open source project over a year ago. The open source ResinOS is now publicly available on its own: https://github.com/resin-os
      ResinOS can run on mostly ARM-based embedded Linux platforms including the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, and Odroid:

      The open source Linux CoreOS (https://coreos.com/why/), supports only x86-64, although attempts have been made to port it to the Raspberry Pi. There are other Docker-friendly Linux distributions like Red Hat based Project Atomic, but still no ARM support.
      Snappy Ubuntu Core, which supports Docker on ARM and x86 embedded targets, but still on some major brands.
      So ResinOS looks like a great new Linux distribution.

      Docker that container virtualization (https://www.docker.com/) hype everyone seems to be into these days ---
      Anyone well along with Docker?
      What does anyone recommend as a reference / howto for those starting?
      Yeah, appeals to me Docker for some upcoming stuff and sandboxes and isolation.   Looking for materials, cause what I am finding in search is type of stuff that makes humans write tech off and go climb a tree.

      First looks at the RPI3:

      Unsure of the exact operating specs, I'd hope there is some other improvements elsewhere as well but built in wifi and bluetooth will certainly be a nice feature to have. The photos above were pulled from http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/02/26/raspberry_pi_3/

      I know we have guys with Pi's and wide interests.  With the holidays, some of us actually get some peace and quiet, and it's a great time to get that idle gear you bought this year doing something useful.  Raspberry Pi's are probably sitting around unused by many of us, so I thought why not promote getting them doing something .  Nice little devices, with the right software. 
      So, we all know Pi's can run Kodi and related AV TV zombie causing tasks.  Blah.  There is other stuff, that's what we want here.  Ready to download to copy to SD card and BOOM the Pi becomes useful.
      Accepting recommendations from others to append to this list.
