Need Help,Container Per User, Remote Desktop, Triggered Run


(Amghclever) #1

I’ve a scenario like this:

1 Physical Ubuntu Server 16.04 ,16 Core, 32 GB Ram, and a Nvidia Titan X 12GB

4 Console PC for Regular Works and Remote To Server

I want to use the server as a deep learning computation server, with some docker containers for individuals who run the codes on server via ssh or better xrdp from the consoles.

through my studies i considered that i have two options:

  • One:
    Create a separate user profile for each user, permit them to remote to their profile and start and stop their own container

  • Two:
    Assign one container per user, set ip and etc; for this there are some ambiguities:

    • 1.Is there anyway to trigger containers start on remote call to save performance
    • 2.Is it possible to RDP to a container
    • 3.Is it possible to shutdown a container from inside it
    • 4.How about auto stopping idle container

Any guide will be helpful!

Are their containers supposed to run servers or simply compute then exit? If it is the later then you can use Jenkins or similar to run a “build” within a docker container . The build will simply be their computations and will exit and save any artifacts wanted in the end.

If they are building servers then perhaps using Portainer to provide a UI for them to load their containers would be more appropriate.
