That's a big assumption, just because the hypervisor is more complex does
not mean vms get simpler (this is the same faulty reasoning that vmware
made a few years past when it told everyone that esxi would replace bioses
and systems would be reduced to their simplest expression — read give us
your money, not to Microsoft or Red Hat). In fact I am quite certain vm
complexity is a direct factor of management tools maturity, and people
will continue to deploy the most complex configurations they can, as long
as the tools let them. No one wants to delegate anything when the problem
can be solved without delegation.
