Containers: Roses & Thorns
I personally found this article interesting and very helpful.  The most appealing part of this article I found is that you are able to move the containers around without a lot of hassle.  The information about CNV is very helpful and the importance to all communication service providers.  It might rake some time for people to really understand the power of this all.  This will be great in the future and make everything more easier.

Containers: Roses & Thorns
I am glad that I read this article because I was trying to find information about the CNV. I thought this article was very helpful because it explained the importance such as communications service providers move more virtualized functions to the cloud and they become more focused on the applications, and they are making the containers are going to be expected to play a leading role. This article will help everyone with the carriers such as AT&T and Verizon because the company's are both looking for containers to also speed up their virtualization efforts.

Re: Containers have to offer
@dcawrey, good prediction.  I believe you are correct.  We are learning the power of design and modular use that builds new effective configurations.  It truly can be powerful.

Re: Containers have to offer
The fact that containers can be easily moved without a lot of disruption to what they can do is really appealing. 

I think it's taken some time for people to really understand the power of containers - but they are going to become more popular than VMs sometime soon - in my opinion.

LOL @JohnBarnes It's all too true about a lot of the tracking we open ourselves up to in our online and mobile activity.

Ariella, Absolutely. I think you can fairly say that in an ecology/management/evolutionary world there are no bugs -- just underexploited features and options we'd rather turn off.

@johnBarnes when you get to that point, is that what justifies saying, "It's not a bug; it's a feature?"

Mhhf1ve, Or we just learn to do what nature does with long term infections -- live with them, adapt to them, eventually start using them for our own purposes.

Re: Seems like part of the ongoing challenge to the idea of "architecture" at all
I think you're right that the trend is away from some top-down architecture and towards more organically-developed protocols that have simple rules that lead to more and more complex functions -- just like nature/biology/ecology. It's a good analogy since we don't understand biology that well, and pretty soon we won't understand how our networks operate. Let's just hope that when our artificial networks catch a "cold" that we can still inject patches to get things "healthy" again....

Re: Seems like part of the ongoing challenge to the idea of "architecture" at all
Mhhf1ve, Yep, it's a big broad blurry zone. But as control devolves more and more to end users it becomes less like control and more like management or cultivation. We're definitely creeping further into the gray area. I'm guessing containers will take us much further into it.
