Setup:

Ubuntu Server 16.04

Docker 1.12.2

Windows 10 client (Bash/Putty)

 

I'm new to Emby, linux and docker. Can someone explain to me how installing Emby server via docker has made my setup easier or better? I hear things like "segregation", "pre-configured" and "seamless". I need some context. 

 

How's it pre-configured? Can I skip any of these file system setup steps since I pulled from the dev container? 

SAMBA setup

- Set to automatically mount drives on boot

- Setup ownership and permissions on media folders

- Setup sharing over network with Window clients

 

Should I be installing other apps into the Emby server docker container or into a new container? 

For example:

- Sonarr

- CouchPotato

- Sabnzbd

 

...I'm still in the middle of setting everything up.

 

Thanks in advance!

I would also like to hear the answers.

 

In my heart, I'm a bare metal guy. Since I need samba,emby, nginx and tvheadend on my server, I haven't even considered docker or any other of segregation. I do run virtualized stuff on datacenters for my work.I see the advantage of moving whole servers from another physical place to another necessary for datacenter use, but this docker fancy baffles me.

I think the sandbox is what is most appealing. Dependencies can be isolated in there without affecting other apps.

With Sandbox, you mean Docker? I'm right?

Being able to snapshot versions, roll back easily, run multiple containers of the same app at the same time on the same machine, netdata visualization support out of the box, to name a few.
