can multiple different users access an docker container running R

I built a docker container that runs a flexdashboard for our company using RStudio Desktop.

It runs and works fine, but there was a request to have multiple users access the dashboard simultaneously, and currently, when one user is logged on, if another user logs on, the original user becomes disconnected.

Is there a way to have multiple users access the dashboard simultaneously? Do I need to change from flexdashboard to shiny? Do I need to upgrade to Studio pro?

Any suggestions welcome.

The most common solution for this is to run a new instance for each client through an orchestrator like shinyproxy, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, etc

But alternatively you could run the flexdashboard trough shiny-server from a single container although this would require allocating more resources for the container and it would not be as efficient.
