How can I use Docker to provide PAAS in Openstack

I have installed Docker or any other container(such as Zun) in DevStack. Now I wish to provide deployment of an application to any developer (a service like PaaS). I currently allow deployment without using containers. If I wish to use containers, how can I do this?

Have you read Docker documentation? It tells you how to deploy your own container, and how to use existing containers.

Yes, I have read that. But how do we integrate Containers in Openstack?

This depends on what you mean by "integrate".

The OpenStack container service is named Zun. It allows you to manage containers without worrying about details like Docker configuration. You create, delete, list etc containers using the Zun API.

Magnum is the service that allows you to manage a container platform, such as a Kubernetes or Docker Swarm cluster. There are no APIs to manage the containers on a Magnum cluster; you need the Docker, Kubernetes or Mesos APIs or commands.

FInally, you can run instances in containers using the LXD hypervisor.
