Erlang is already like a miniaturized operating system implementing
well-scheduled lightweight microservices, and releases (
already a redistributable, self-contained, minimizable unit of deployment
that can be monitored, inspected and logged using standard unix workflow.
In my opinion, the cost-benefit of using docker is highly questionable even
in its optimal use case, where the dev team is composed entirely of
microservices and pretending they're being lightweight. Maybe there's a
case to be made for tooling which takes languages with terrible
manageability and hides them behind something, but it's not at all clear
that docker is the answer to that or any other question. It makes a
negative amount of sense to layer the highly ceremonial, unperformant,
problem-multiplying docker abstraction on top of an actually light, already
existing microservices architecture, and I wouldn't wish ownership of the
resulting mutant chimera on my worst enemy. But again -- my personal
