I guess "extra virtualization layer" means Magnum provisions a Container
Orchestration Engines (COE) on top of nova instances. If the nova instances
are virtual machines, there is a "extra virtualization layer".
I think you could consider using Magnum with Ironic driver. If the driver
is Ironic, COEs are deployed to nova instances that are physical machines
provided by Ironic. Zun project  could be another option for your use
case. Zun is similar to nova-docker, which enables running containers on
compute hosts. You could find a thoughtful introduction here .
