Hi Frank,

thank you for your in-depth answer. Maybe I should give docker a try again and see, if the problems are as big as I imagined. Your post gives me some hope that it's possible to use it in production.

Thank you very much for your time and effort!

TBH, you should use what works best for you! If you're fine with running a DB installed by ansible scripts on virtual machines, then do it. If you're facing problems that Docker can solve then go for it. But don't use something just because it's available ;)

If you'd like, feel free to share some more details on the setup and the problems you're facing :)
