[Hongbin Lu] Container runtimes, docker in particular, are being considered for the first implementation. We discussed how to support COEs in Zun but cannot reach an agreement on the direction. I will leave it for further discussion.

What do you mean by APIs here? [Hongbin Lu] Yes, the plan is to implement a Zun virt-driver for Nova. The idea is similar to Ironic. > > > > - What operations are we expecting this to support (just CRUD > > operations on containers?)? [Hongbin Lu] We are working on finding the list of operations to support.

[Hongbin Lu] I agree that end users might not be satisfied by basic container operations like CRUD.
