comment Creating sub certificates from a root certificate (SSL)
Got it, that's very helpful. So to be clear, if I wanted to do it and have a legit, error free experience in the browser, I'd need a certificate authority certificate. I'm guessing this isn't the sort of thing I can just easily buy, right?

comment Docker with persistent root storage on EC2
Would it be possible to mount the volume in such a way that developers can install software etc using sudo, and when restoring the container, it would be preserved? That way only 'linux core' would be in the container volume itself.

comment Docker with persistent root storage on EC2
Yes, the problem with the workstations is reliability and accessibility from home. I've already got this working with on-demand instances (we have built a dispatcher app that manages all the instances), but we have to power them down at night to make it cost effective, which is less than ideal. If I can squeeze some more efficiency from the set up then everything will be perfect!

comment Docker with persistent root storage on EC2
I'm creating development environments for developers, accessible over remote desktop, so that they can set up their IDE etc as they like. Currently the cost of giving each dev their own on-demand instance is prohibitive, especially as with interactive use, they will be mostly idle. The ideal situation is to share resources so they can make efficient use of hardware.

Is there an LXC or similar solution that would be more appropriate?

comment Docker with persistent root storage on EC2
That's right; I've built the docker images already and that seems fine, and I can use sudo to install software etc. The main thing I want to do is make the containers durable, so that they act more like standard VMs.
