Hi John,

None that we have details on (yet), although some have hinted at
running production Riak deployments within Docker containers on Apache
Mesos (potentially across multiple hosts).

We are tracking a similar request here. [0] As of right now, a popular
path forward appears to be cross-host linking via Ambassador
containers. [1] I have yet to prove this out myself.
