BGP in a containers

I run BGP (bird) on containers in a high available production environment for supporting multiple kubernetes clusters, among other very critical pieces of my infrastructure. 
As long as you know what youâ??re doing and have people that knows how to troubleshoot, it's very reliable. the fact that youâ??re using containers shouldnâ??t matter which BGP daemon you will decide using. if youâ??re comfortable with quagga, containerize quagga.  if you like gobgp, use gobgp. they all can be containerized and will work fine if the all the underlying foundation is proper configured.
