Cloud infrastructures and micro-service-oriented development paradigms have fundamentally changed software development in recent years. Instead of extensive monolithic releases, much more emphasis is now placed on fast executability and easy distribution. Container technologies as a service offer the advantages of cloud computing here. the offers of cloud providers are manifold. The question arises: Do managed complete offers make sense or are small tools sufficient to operate container-based applications?
