Wish I could have been there!

I've been toying with the idea of a HA presentation called "Anything
they can do we can do better" - but my non-confrontational swedish
sensibilities are keeping me back. Would love to see someone else do
that one though. ;)

This may be due to ignorance on my part, but from what I have seen so
far, I personally think Pacemaker has all of the new container-centric
cluster "solutions" including Kubernetes beat on everything except
handling network configuration. Which admittedly is a big part of
container management...
