Humans are compulsive comparers. We have a natural propensity to view things in our day-to-day lives by setting them against each other. It helps us to choose the most desirable option, prevents us from getting ripped-off, or even fuels our drive to innovate and improve. Let me touch on that last benefit conferred by our urge to compare. Last week, my colleague Rob Duncan waxed eloquent about the characteristics of IT champions at many enterprises.

Light-weight container based infrastructure (e.g. Docker) along with resource and cluster management solutions such as Mesos are a natural fit for microservices applications. Assembling production-ready microservices applications requires a combination of infrastructure services, the application components themselves, and a range of application services.
