Our primary drive is to both improve and standardise containerisation of various applications, but that should be qualified by a few things:
- Is there an “official” offering already?
- If there is, does it provide all the necessary features required by its users
- Is it actively maintained?
- Do members of the LSIO team already use the app or container?
It’s not our vision to absorb the market for all applications, so we tend to review whether or not our input would actively benefit users and the app developers.
We got into containerisation before it really kicked off (perhaps 5 or so years ago) so since then a fair number of developers have created their own versions (see Plex for example).
Hope that helps clear things up.
