Observe, Enhance, & Control: VMs to Containers



Mitchell Hashimoto takes a look at VMs, which solution architectures worked there, and discusses why these architectures are no longer adequate in a containerized world. Hashimoto then discusses how these same problems are being solved today, and how we can expect similar problems to be solved as the container world matures.


Mitchell Hashimoto is best known as the creator of Vagrant, Packer, Terraform and Consul. Hashimoto is the founder of HashiCorp, a company that builds powerful and elegant DevOps tools.
