As far as production deployments of containers, has the last year been a turning point?

We've had containers embedded in RHEL since RHEL 7, which was three years ago. So the technology has been very solid for a long time. But what's really changed starting now is now you're starting to see, you're starting to see the developer tools start to center around containers. So it's not necessarily the containers themselves are getting more stable, but you're seeing the tooling around it that's making it much easier to build apps, to support apps, to manage apps. And you're starting to see the ecosystem—which is exactly how RHEL happened—now you're starting to see commercial software vendors look at containers as a way to package and ship their products as well. That's where we announced the Container Health Index—that's aimed at commercial vendors getting their stuff on containers and ready for the enterprise. So I think you're starting to see surrounding things around it getting it more ready for the enterprise. And of course, platforms like OpenShift that now help our customers build, deploy, and manage it as well. There's sort of been a crescendo building up, and now you're hitting production with it.
