A “container” way to execute powercli and naviseccli

This post is just a littel review of two docker images that could aid developer and sysadmin to execute scripted task. From sysadmin perspective it doesn’t change a lot from using client installed version of powercli and navicli, but IMHO it could be more confortable in some off-premise scenarios.

Enjoy and let me know issues and improvements

Powercli

Enjoy!
