OpenStack Trove experimental datastores

In Victoria, Trove moved to Docker images for the datastores.  Any datastores that didn't update themselves were removed, regardless of state.  I believe the only datastores currently supported are MariaDB, and PostgreSQL, though MySQL might be supported as well.

Personally. I find this to have been a bad example of the "containerize all the things" mentality.  Trove now deploys an instance (vm) for each datastore instance, running a single container.  The exception is if you request backups, in which case a backup container is added to the instance (vm).

Trove is installed in our OpenStack cloud, but we don't use it.

Thank you,

Why were the experimental datastores removed in the Trove OpenStack Victoria release?
