Differences between the ubos-target container and a typical UBOS production system
ubos-target container in the Docker development setup is
very similar to a typical UBOS production system, on either virtualized
or physical hardware.
Some of the differences are:
UBOS production systems take advantage of the btrfs filesystem, such as to create file system snapshots during system administration operations with
ubos-admin. Docker provides its own filesystem, and so these features are not available.
ubos-targetcontainer allows you to install Packages that are not digitally signed. This is not permitted on production systems. This difference makes it easier for you, as developer, to quickly deploy work-in-progress packages without having to set up an additional package signing infrastructure.
