Ubiquitous infrastructure support
Thank you for a thought provoking article. I agree with you that full instatiation of virtual resources in the form of Virtual Machine and its scheduling mechanisms for the underlying server physical compoments, definitely still holds true on many ocasions. At the same time, the appeal of containers with their increased scale and decreased underlying server resource demands, is gaining lots of traction.
In your mind, how would you guide customers making strategic investment decisions in the infrastructure components (compute, services, storage, network, orchestration etc...) today, so their investments are protected tomorrow should they make a dicision to pursue containers vs VMs?
Thank you, David
