vm-service for Static environments (with Windows builds)
Currently, "static" installations on "bare metal" servers support only "On-Host" machine builders. "On-Host" driver is implemented using privileged containers, and it has several technical drawbacks, such as:
security concerns (jobs with privileged containers can interfere other container jobs or the host Nomad client itself)
incapability to interact with attached hardware/virtual hardware (esp. GPUs installed on the fleet)
incomplete support of kernel module handling (such as kernel module building, test with modprobe, etc)
unsupported Windows builds
Introduction of "real" VM builds, in which vm-service talks to on-premises virtualization platforms (such as ESXi), will overcome those drawbacks.
