Hi Guys,

I am setting up Openstack for a research project. I would like to use Docker for running lightweight containers, but it seems that the Docker driver has been removed from the Icehouse.

In the Havana it is included: https://github.com/openstack/nova/tree/stable/havana/nova/virt But, from Icehouse it is missing: https://github.com/openstack/nova/tree/stable/icehouse/nova/virt

Does anyone know why this is done? Or maybe even better, knows when it will be included back into the repository?

You need to manually download and configure it, because docker compute driver does not currently have CI running against it. Also see below link: http://blog.docker.io/2014/03/docker-... . And the best way to use is via heat. The preferred mechanism orchestrating Docker in OpenStack is via Heat, rather than treating Docker as a form of hypervisor in OpenStack, so the docker driver is deprecated and heat templates will help to create VM instances with docker containers running in them.

Running CoreOS instances might be a handly way to get Docker in OpenStack.

The reasons are outlined in the Gerrit review that removed it. You can still get the driver from stackforge.
