Virtualized or Containrized software solution alternatives?

A lot of this "customizable" server acquisition is already available in a different but more flexible and less convoluted form - Servers with Docker or BSD "applications specific" Containers, for which separate memory , storage capacity, even ip addresses and networking configurations can be allocated. Even the networking component is now custom configurable in form of Software Defined Networking (SDN)

Since several applications and vertical software vendors provide these " containerized" solution, it is difficulty to see the needs for a hardware only approach.
