Deploying Nvidia NGC Docker containers

Hello,

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 https://github.com/NVIDIA/nvidia-docker/wiki/NVIDIA-Container-Runtime-on-Jetson), as depicted in the figure shown below.

Will this functionality be supported in the near future?

Hi,
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,
Theodor
