Nomad + Flatcar: A Harmonious Marriage of Lightweights

In this talk, Iago López Galeiras introduces Flatcar Container Linux, a popular distribution in the Kubernetes community, and demonstrates how it works just as well — perhaps better — for Nomad.

Nomad is popular as an efficient, lightweight container orchestrator. But a truly efficient, lightweight deployment environment can only be built on a minimal Linux that is designed specifically for running containers.

In this talk, Iago López Galeiras introduces Flatcar Container Linux, a popular distribution in the Kubernetes community, and demonstrates how it works just as well — perhaps better — for Nomad.

Flatcar Container Linux is a secure, immutable, auto-updating, lightweight Linux operating system. This makes Flatcar a perfect match for Linux containers running on Nomad: nodes will update automatically and stay secure in a simple way, without the administrator having to do the heavy lifting.

This talk will explain best practices for deploying Nomad on Flatcar and demonstrate a Nomad cluster running on Flatcar.
