Traditionally there have been very clear battle lines drawn for application and infrastructure deployment. When you need to run a Virtual Machine, you run it on your virtualization platform (Openstack, VMWare, etc.) and when you need to run a container workload, you run it on your container platform (Kubernetes). But when you’re deploying your application, do you really care where it runs? Or do you just care that it runs somewhere?
This is where I entered this discussion and I quickly realized that in most cases, I really didn’t care. What I knew was that I needed to have the things I required to build my application or run my training. I also knew that if I could avoid having to manage multiple sets of automation — that would be an even bigger benefit. So if I could have both running within a single platform, I was absolutely on board to give it a shot.
