I don't see the benefits containerizing every OpenStack component. Installing them from 
packages, and run them in a physical host is the way how Linux systems worked for
years, it still works for us.

I read about it, I didn't check it personally. My personal concern about Dockerizing
OpenStack that now the whole infrastructure depends an a docker daemon. But maybe
I am wrong, I'm not an expert in this field.
