Hi guys

For my internship I am researching how to implement Docker in our daily workflow. I am currently deciding which operating system to use. Are there any more special features about Project Atomic besides Rpm-ostree and the extra security and systemd?

Why should we use Project Atomic istead of Racher OS, Ununtu Snappy Core or Core OS?

I've tested almost all of them and your decision depends on how to use it and for.
Rancher - great philosophy (system vs. user containers), great performance but it's a little immature by my opinion. Good for non-produce site. I look forward to its future development.
Core OS - if you want (or plan) a large deployment spanning over clustered environment, it's probably one of the best solution.
Atomic - the solution I've chosen for my standalone server. Easy and clear documentation, installation process, scalability. Covered by Red Hat (support, background, ...).
Snappy - only product I didn't tested (I wasn't able to config initial login and password - funny :-)). Its the most installed lean OS, therefore I'm sad we broke up too soon :-).

In General - all of them are under active development and entirely different from their "parents" (Atomic CentOS isn't lightweight CentOS). All of them need many improvements to mature for enterprise environment.
