    The key failure of the container vision today is that, unless you are Google scale, where you have a significant cost advantage from reduced server footprint, and where you can afford a fleet of container infrastructure engineers to keep up with the evolving landscape, the operational effort simply doesn’t stack up to deliver the benefits. It shouldn’t be necessary to rewrite how we do logging, monitoring, packaging, and deployment, and to dedicate engineers to maintaining and grooming the container monster, just to simplify shipping code to production.

    I love this quote. I work for a large company that is spending millions and years building container infrastructure on top of Docker; it hasn’t paid off and I doubt it ever will.
