Domino Portable Edition - Building the smallest Domino server

Sadly I haven't been at the HCL Factory tour #3 in Chelmsford.
I would like to have seen the demo first hand. But I got live tickers over iMessage when Thomas Hampel took a lot of spare time to build it.

Thomas did show the smallest Domino server running on a small pocket size Linux based machine leveraging Docker CE on Ubuntu with the official
Domino on Docker script.

You should have a look at his
blog post for details.

The reason for Ubuntu is the missing hardware support on SLES/RHEL/CentOS for the CPU used in this tiny device.

But the beauty is that Docker works the same on Ubuntu and runnning our Docker image is supported.
Thomas could have build the image also on the Docker host installed on that machine.

On the other side it was faster to export and import the Docker image from a build machine and it shows how you could do it if you have Docker installed on a different device or on the cloud where you have to import the image.

That's Thomas for the time you spend on it also for the step by step documentation and the pictures!
It is really great to see what is possible. The tricky part was the Linux install. The Docker part works unmodified.

I was a big fan of the foundation server. And having something like this again but as a software solution for different standard hardware like the Intel NUC would be very cool!

Now you have a smaller box than the NUC you and me used for our DNUG Docker workshop earlier this year ;-)

Have a great weekend!
