Many of the 68 percent of enterprises who are currently experimenting with containers are in the process of finding out that it is simple to deploy containerized apps in a small environment, such as a laptop. It is less simple to deploy them to load balanced and scalable deployments with thousands of users and strict compliance requirements. For the latter, enterprises require a full container management stack, very similar to today's virtualization management stack. Traditional virtualization administrators cannot implement and manage this stack because doing so requires skill and experience specific to container infrastructure. A few years ago, OpenStack was in the place of containers today, with OpenStack architects and engineers being the most sought after tech experts around. This is not to say that containers will see the same decline that OpenStack experienced, but it is critical to understand that containers like OpenStack play at the infrastructure level. They are a means to an end: turning your organization into a "digital attacker" that can constantly deliver the best possible value proposition to your customers by optimizing business processes and end-user experience. Customers do not have a preference as to whether your app is running in containers, as serverless functions on AWS Lambda, or on a mainframe.
