Agreed, who actually uses PV these days? HVM has been available for years and clearly you are going to need to be on HVM to get the benefits of PCID - which is the only way not to get clobbered by the fixes.

PV - makes a nice headline for ops software companies but in real life not so much.

Developer convenience is right ...

... but you've missed a trick here. One of the key features of Kubernetes from where I am standing is its developer convenience. The transition from minikube to kops to on-prem is pretty much seamless - I can develop on my laptop and it looks exactly the same as if I deploy to AWS. The convenience of YAML all tied up in a single deployment driver is a productivity boon. I can even do it on my Windows 10 box at home using WSL and the same YAML as I use on my OSX laptop. A big part of the puzzle is how good docker has got on local environments but it's also the way Kubernetes has been designed. I don't believe it's going away any time soon.
