The tradeoffs are severe and at this point it is not interesting enough to risk a project.EOX is providing the real guest OS even though it’s not a complete or real OSThe filesystem is only a fraction of traditional servicesI’m not sure whether or not filesystem snapshotting is possibleYou’re stuck with erlangthey are even using BEAM filesthere is still a host OSit’s not open source yetit’s a commercial project first and foremostyou should checkout first. At least you’ll have more choices before getting locked in.
