Re: Standardization: Is it finally coming?
@Stratustician, I would go even further: Docker is to VMWare as VMWare is to conventional single-image servers.  It will be every bit as disruptive, and VMWare will be one of the key players whose boat will get seriously rocked.  :-)

Docker follows good examples
Stratustician, agreed. Docker Inc. is following the example of Rackspace in giving up control of OpenStack and VMware/Pivotal in giving up control of Cloud Foundry in exchange for participation by competitors in a foundation and wider community of contributors. Such a move encourages wider adoption of the core technology. Sun in some ways was a model also in how it handled Java, but it could never quite relinquish control.

Standardization: Is it finally coming?
I love posts like these where we finally see organizations and industry groups working together to offer better standardization to not only hopefully speed up adoption, but help build in some kind of best practices built in to make it not only more accessible for end users, but to help better integrate into the cloud environments currently being built or already up and running.

Containerization will bring some great performance advantages, similar to what we've seen with traditional virtualization, but we could see even more returns on investment if we can get enough of the industry not just asking cloud providers for stable, and open builds that can be utilized across different platforms (think hybrid) but more guidance on how to properly implement this new approach.
