In VMs, there was a standard, sort of
Polvi said interoperability was missed in the virtual machine world, and he's right, mostly. There's contending proprietary formats from VMware, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services, as well as disimilar open source formats in Xen and KVM. But the community did get behind a shared, neutral import format, OVH from the Distributed Management Task Force. One hypervisor could recognize another's format that way.

Batts says Linux container community must try to avoid splits
Red Hat's Vincent Batts in a quick conversation at CoreOS Fest told me he remembers the packaging dispute between Red Hat's RPM and another contender. "It set Linux back five years," he said. He thinks open source developers with an interest in containers have a lot in common and should seek to maintain unity in the community, not split it and line up behind divergent efforts. That helps explain Red Hat's presence and possibly why CoreOS is comfortable seeing an employee of a competitor named as chief maintainer of its container spec -- that would be Batts.
