This is a counter-post to the one at https://lobste.rs/s/xov7nz/what_s_your_container_less_deployment :)
I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts. What are the big reasons for avoiding containers in production systems?
FWIW, My experience has generally been positive, minus the occasional hiccups/bugs here and there. I’ve generally found the gains in productivity make up for the complexity issues that arise, most of which can be solved with some education and tooling.
(Full disclosure: I worked at a so-called “container company” for a while, and was pretty involved in this space for a while, but I don’t work there anymore.)
