FreeBSD Virtual Machines

It is possible to run FreeBSD Virtual Machines the same way one can run Linux containers on FreeBSD Community Cluster. Simply use freebsd_instance in .cirrus.yml files:

freebsd_instance:
  image: freebsd-11-2-release-amd64

task:
  install_script: pkg install -y ...
  script: ...

Under the Hood

Under the hood a simple integration with Google Compute Engine is used.
