2017 is almost done and 2018 is upon us. Looking back at this blog and its posts in 2017, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for going on the virtualisation journey with us! We’ve had another awesome year, filled with good content and plenty of fun topics.

  9. Containers Containers Containers even in 2017?
