Cloud Native Computing Foundation Seeks Clarity for a World of Container Confusion

Susan Hall for The New Stack | December 17th, 2015

If you believe Bryan Cantrill, CTO at Joyent, we’ve yet to reach the peak of confusion about containers. “Everyone I talked to said, ‘We’re not even close.’ Confusion is accelerating and is actually pretty overwhelming for a lot of folks,” he said about attending KubeCon last month. “I think it’s being exacerbated a little bit by people feeling like it’s a land grab.
