What does a complete modern enterprise container-ship look like?

In a recent rancher labs blog post the author covered ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana). What caught my attention was the number of containers required to deploy the design. As I began to consider the deployment I realized that the 4-5 containers deployed to watch one container is a little overkill but of course you have to start somewhere as you transition from a legacy deployment to containers.Assuming that converting to containers from baremetal or VM solutions has a net zero overhead cost then converting your enterprise from [a] to [b] should require the same hardware footprint/cost.
