- - (Relatively) easy to use management wrapper around LCX, in particular quick deployment and a templating mechanism to describe container contents and deal with dependencies
- - Uses a union filesystem to thiny provision containers, with development work to use other filesystem mechanisms to achieve the same goal
- - There's a ecosystem to share containers similar to ecosystems around sharing pre-built virtual machines
- - Backed by a commercial company

I've had excellent luck with Dell L3 Gig switches off eBay. You can usually pick up an older 6000-series for around ~$300 and much less if your patient.
Also, if you can do fiber gig, the Cisco 3550-12G and 4912G can be had for much less than $100.
