Hi Openstack experts? Can you create containers/dockers inside vm within the cloud with Cinder and swift? Can you install both the cinder and swift services within the cloud? Would it cause any conflict? Do people normally just install one and not both (depending on they need of course)?

thanks

You can create containers in an instance, including but not limited to Docker containers. This is what Magnum does, for example. I don't quite understand what you mean by "with Cinder and Swift", though. Cinder will be useful for creating shareable persistent volumes, and Swift for backups and the like.

Can you install both the cinder and swift services within the cloud? Would it cause any conflict?

They don't conflict.

Do people normally just install one and not both (depending on they need of course)?

If they need both, they install both.

okay thanks I will install both then - i mean installing both means that the cloud has extra functionality (since you said they don't conflict with each other), right?

Yes, extra functionality in both cases. When you install Cinder, you get volumes. With Swift, you get object storage.

Since you asked what most people do: I forgot to mention that the predominant object storage solution seems to be Ceph.
