Modern applications are not monolithic. They're mashups of various
open-source components with some proprietary magic sauce worth paying
for running on clusters of commodity VMs run by Amazon or Google.

In one sense, the complexity continues to increase. In another sense,
things become simpler, because the interoperation of the open-source
building blocks can increasingly be taken as a given and managed at an
ever higher level. Instead of configuring a UNIX server from scratch
you can just spawn a VM with the stack you need from an online library
of images, or spawn a whole cluster into a Docker Datacenter.
