So, I'm not so sure that building a product that mandates both btrfs and Docker really counts as "decoupled".

Hi, jd @ Pachyderm here.

Long term we don't want to mandate either of these technologies. We'd like to offer users a variety of job formats (docker and rocket come to mind more domain specific things like SQL are interesting as well) and a variety of storage options (zfs, overlayfs, aufs and in-memory to name a few). However we had to be pragmatic early on and pick what we thought were the highest leverage implementations so that we could ship something that worked.

We'll certainly be looking in to getting rid of this mandate in the near future, we like giving people a variety of choices.
