Nomad is a job scheduler created by Hashicorp. Since it’s written in Go, it’s a single, cross platform, statically linked binary. It has drivers for Docker, Qemu, Rkt, Java, App execution, and a beta for LXC. I’ll just go over the exec driver in this post. To start you need to download Nomad from here. I stuck it in /usr/local/bin. I used Vagrant to bring up a server and two clients.
