Docker Registry - local or hosted?

Today, amongst endless emails, proposal writing and fretting about the future (in a broad sense), I've been contemplating the relative merits of having a local Docker Registry as opposed to the out-of-the-box central one provided by Docker.

On the one hand its nice to be in control and on the other it does mean additional overhead. I concluded that I needed to do some research to weigh the pros and cons so I'll post my eventual conclusions here once I've had a proper chance to investigate more fully...

UPDATE: I've just seen a good article which nicely posits some answers...still mulling though..

Illusion and reality

Why does life and the expectations thereof not live up to our expectations?

Is it:

1. Our expectations are set too high.
2. We employ a different metric on the positive than on the negative?
3. Life is stacked against us.

Answers in the fullness of time.

The great 6foot hath spoken and the great 6foot doth beckon.

Here endeth the lesson the first.
