Running Containers in Production

If the past year has done nothing else, it has solidified containers as the accepted standard for deploying applications in production. I could spend time rehashing why Linux containers are important, what benefits they provide, or why they have caused such a stir; however, I am confident countless others have successfully accomplished that for me. I am writing this as a series of posts, aimed to convince readers that running containers in production, at scale, is currently a difficult task. And, if we as developers, operations engineers, managers, etc wish to reap the aforementioned benefits of containerization, sufficient improvements are needed.
