Containers are an indicator of conceptual decay. Application developer
code has now become infrastructure and is due to the juniority far
away from any half-standardized protocols. In times with agile
software development, architects lost track of the _overall_ system
architecture. System daemons seem not to be enough anymore or too hard
for junior application developer people to base some services on. Also
it is hard to write a daemon in J2EE Java or nodejs...

Since application programmers started developing (system)
infrastructure you now need to put their dependency hell into some
manageable "containers" to keep your base server infrastructure
somehow manageable.

But the introduction of containers will not lead to a better
architecture, it is just the opener for uncaring developers to do
system programming in nodejs etc.

Remember what the introduction of all programming paradigms into C++ led to.
