What do you mean by "complex with the containers"? Is the mere fact of 
containers usage a complex thing for you or the problem is in some 
implementation details around it?

And did you have a chance to check the Kolla project? It uses Ansible 
too, but the difference is that Kolla uses Docker containers and 
openstack-ansible uses "raw" LXC.
