Using BBG in a linux cluster (for running Docker/Kubernetes)

Hi all -

I see examples of people using RPI’s to build headless linux clusters with docker support. I was wondering if there were efforts to do the same kind of thing BBG boards because it seems like a good idea to me…

I’m not sure how much disk space one would require to run a minimal docker/kubernetes configuration, but I’m thinking I’d rather use a BBG with on-board eMMC over a pi with microSD because it seems it might be more economical and comparable from a perf perspective.

I think it also might be pretty easy to use the seed connectors to add some type of actuator or simple lcd on the health of the cluster.

Anyone else with the same thoughts?
Anyone have a linux distro they’d recommend?

Thanks for any thoughts…
