Server...less docker

Server…less Docker… or stream processing with docker using golang. At Dockercon I saw a ‘cool hack’ they called server-less docker. Basically the idea is to use containers as functions in programs instead of using containers as servers. This brings back the concept of cgi. Further on the idea of server-less docker is to create a program and inside the program functions call out to containers to do the work. Instead of needing to maintain a huge cluster of servers for a particular purpose you can have raw compute available as a swarm cluster and just utilize it as necessary for whatever computation you need.
