For containers, security is problem #1

It may take a disaster or two for the lessons of needing to do security right sink in. Only then will containers be ready for prime time.

I get it. I really do. Containers let data-center and cloud administrators put two to three times more server instances on a given server than they can with virtual machines. That means fewer servers, which means less power usage, which equals -- Ka-ching! -- less spending on your IT budget. What's not to like?
