-----------------------------------

             Summary: Support auto backend in Unified Containerizer.
                 Key: MESOS-5931
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MESOS-5931
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: containerization
            Reporter: Gilbert Song


Currently in Unified Containerizer, copy backend will be selected by default. This is not
ideal, especially for production environment. It would take a long time to prepare an huge
container image to copy it from the store to provisioner.

Ideally, we should support `auto backend`, which would automatically/intelligently select
the best/optimal backend for image provisioner if user does not specify one from the agent
flag.

We should have a logic design first in this ticket, to determine how we want to choose the
right backend (e.g., overlayfs or aufs should be preferred if available from the kernel).
