Deploying Nvidia NGC Docker containers


We would like to use balena to deploy to a fleet of Jetson Nano boards. Due to the nature of our use case, we would like to leverage Nvidia’s DeepStream SDK to accelerate development. They offer pre-built Docker containers (NGC containers) containing the required libraries and hardware acceleration support.

However, these containers should be run using the Nvidia docker runtime (see, as depicted in the figure shown below.

Will this functionality be supported in the near future?

Unfortunately we do not have plans to support nvidia docker runtime, but I am sure you can run the stack without that. It would just require a bit more work as it will not work “out of the box”.
Kind regards,
