On my Docker production host have I ~20 containers running on a single host, and was wondering at which point does it make sense to use Project Atomic instead?

I assume Project Atomic is geared towards big scale enterprise setups, so I suspect running it on a single host have some extra complexity compared to the simple setup I have now?

Part of the equation is what tools are you using to manage your current containers? While the full docker + kubernetes cluster config may be more than what you are looking for, the tools like atomic command are designed around managing single containers and extending the docker command. Are you using local tools, docker compose, git, etc.? These may not be available, and need a local tree for now.

The basics of operation aren't such a big switch, but it does take a bit of getting used to. The basic Docker environment should be very solid, managing storage, etc. But Cockpit and the newer tools could also be a useful change.

I don't think it's as complex as you might think, and should be fairly simple to try out in a VM.
