"CoreOS is king!"

What do you like best?

Minimal OS resource footprint and multiple tools for container and cluster deployment: rkt, tectonic, etc!

What do you dislike?

Right now the biggest grip is that it officially only includes x86-64 support. Full ARM compatibility would open up some incredible opportunities, including cluster IOT computing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"The future OS of distributed computing"

What do you like best?

An OS designed for distributed computing. Incredible tooling and performance for containers.

What do you dislike?

Very tight on using etcd for service discovery. I'd prefer to implement Consul easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Semi-manged clustering. Using CoreOS comes with prebuilt solutions to aid our infrastructure.

What Operating System solution do you use?
