MongoDB gets mature aiming to grab at SQL markets.. adds support for ACID – allowing regular transactions reliability in parallel to its traditional support for fast noSQL abilities:

Kubernetes 1.9 includes powerful admission extension abilities that are part of the golden principles Kubernetes is being built on – you want to look for those principals in other solutions you are considering.
What is Admission?
Admission is the phase of handling an API server request that happens before a resource is persisted, but after authorization. Admission gets access to the same information as authorization (user, URL, etc) and the complete body of an API request (for most requests).
What are they good for?
Webhook admission plugins allow for mutation and validation of any resource on any API server, so the possible applications are vast. Some common use-cases include:
Mutation of resources like pods. Istio has talked about doing this to inject side-car containers into pods. You could also write a plugin which forcefully resolves image tags into image SHAs.
Name restrictions. On multi-tenant systems, reserving namespaces has emerged as a use-case.
Complex CustomResource validation. Because the entire object is visible, a clever admission plugin can perform complex validation on dependent fields (A requires B) and even external resources (compare to LimitRanges).
Security response. If you forced image tags into image SHAs, you could write an admission plugin that prevents certain SHAs from running.

The latest Cloud Forms from Redhat targets the easy use of AWS Cloud Formation and OpenStack Heat templates import, customization, creation, deployment.
It offers a service catalog of Cloud resources setups including load balancers, servers and more.
It also makes it easier to customize your Cloud templates by offering forms and variables per the templates you pick.
Then it triggers Ansible Tower for in depth deployment and configuration management of your instances.
The Cloud Management portal shows you your Cloud components, instances, operating systems and applications including general Linux and Windows as well.
Maybe it sounds like an enterprise vendor trying to grab it all..and maybe this time this vendor actually makes it..
I still would like to see TerraForm there as well..
Anyway there’s the video
