If you take heed of any of the many reports relating to cloud-native computing,
then you'd be forgiven for thinking that every organization, large or small, is
well on the way to a microservices-oriented application nirvana. The truth is, of course, that a good number of
organizations have started the journey, but still maintain traditional
monolithic applications, and have some way to go in the journey. Is it possible
to take advantage of the new set of cloud-native technologies such as Docker,
when you have applications of mixed architectural styles?
