In my last blog post I pointed out you can never actually avoid vendor or technology lock-in. This is particularly applicable to the main orchestration tool you use. You have to choose one orchestrator and will want to stay with that choice for quite some time. So, making the right choice is key.
As I mentioned previously, I’m privileged to meet with companies on a regular basis. And I don’t know how often I’ve had a discussion around the subject of vendor lock-in. I clearly understand the fears companies have to hook themselves with a vendor and not be able to take advantage of innovations coming from other sources.
