[Freeswitch-users] quality/stability of freeswitch under docker

I've got a production environment that's been running w/ a source build on ubuntu 16.04 for several years. I'm in the 
process of upgrading this to ubuntu 20, which also appears to be working fine. Setup is dual hosts with keepalived for 
failover, pointing to a separate 3-node mariadb based galera cluster.

However, during this process I've been considering whether it would be a bit cleaner to move to a docker based 
deployment to have freeswitch inside the container use the more fully "supported" debian packages.

Anyone have any thoughts on the general stability/performance/etc. of running FS under docker vs source build? Any 
differences? Main areas of concern I have are the network interactions, and I was thinking about using the 'host 
network' mode to address that.

I'm looking at using https://github.com/signalwire/freeswitch/blob/master/docker/master/Dockerfile modified to reference 
buster instead of jesse. (Can't see doing an updated deployment on 8 if 10 has production-ready packages.)

Any feedback/experiences/etc. would be appreciated.
