[openstack-dev] [all][ironic] Kubernetes-based long running processes

Hi all,

There was an idea of using Kubernetes to handle long running processes for Ironic [0]. It could be useful for example for graphical and serial consoles or improving scalability (and possibly for other long-running processes in the future). Kubernetes would be used as a backend for running processes (as containers).
However, the complexity of adding this to ironic would be a too laborious, considering the use case. At the PTG it was decided not to implement it within ironic, but in the future ironic may adopt such solution if it’s common.

I’m reaching out to you to ask if you’re aware of any other use cases that could leverage such solution. If there’s a need for it in other project, it may be a good idea to implement this in some sort of a common place.

Kind regards,
