Apcera's Continuum - works but is costly

Posted at — Oct 20, 2014

I have not made the complete rounds on Continuum, however, I was able to get a VMware host running and interacting with the UI which is a level of success I have not been able to reach with the other PaaS systems. Continuum is similar to Stampede/Cattle in that you can deploy an OS as well as containers. Continuum seems to be tweaking the glossary but the outcome seems to be the same. Docker containers, Full OS, buildpacks… But the pricing is crazy. $2000-$7000 for 32GB to 128GB (I’m not sure what Apcera mean by: “A monthly subscription of Continuum is based on assets under management and consists of a cluster and a standard support package”)
