Docker as translator/helper
"If each cloud recognizes what to do with Docker containers when they arrive, it matters less that there's no smooth path between that cloud and its chief competitor." Is this how you're thinking about Docker containers, readers? It's been one of the biggest cloud worries for years, the path between competing clouds and possible lock-in pain.

Re: Limited options for containers in the cloud today
I have seen quite an uptake under Ubuntu (bare metal) although that's not my area of interest (Redhat). Just watching from the sidelines is what I consider fun no matter what may com of it.

Limited options for containers in the cloud today
If you have a set of related applications that you've tested running together in containers on a single host, and that approach works safely, then your best cloud option is probably limited to those providers that offer dedicated bare metal hosts. And it would be best if they have CoreOS or Red Hat's Linux Atomic Host (still in beta) as selections for host operating systems. The chief candidates to do that are Rackspace and IBM SoftLayer. Otherwise, your Docker container is likely to be running inside a virtual machine somewhere.
