Amazon EKS vs Docker Cloud: What are the differences?

Amazon EKS: Highly available and scalable Kubernetes service. Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes clusters; Docker Cloud: A hosted service for Docker container management and deployment. Docker Cloud is the best way to deploy and manage Dockerized applications. Docker Cloud makes it easy for new Docker users to manage and deploy the full spectrum of applications, from single container apps to distributed microservices stacks, to any cloud or on-premises infrastructure.

Amazon EKS and Docker Cloud can be primarily classified as "Containers as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Amazon EKS are:

  • Managed Kubernetes Control Plane - Amazon EKS provides a scalable and highly-available control plane that runs across multiple AWS availability zones.
  • Security and Networking - Amazon EKS makes it easy to provide security for your Kubernetes clusters, with advanced features and integrations to AWS services and technology partner solutions.
  • Logging - Amazon EKS is integrated with Amazon CloudWatch Logs and AWS CloudTrail to provide visibility and audit history tracking of your cluster and user activity.

On the other hand, Docker Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Simplify Docker Provisioning
  • Deploy Apps Anywhere
  • Automate Your Developer Workflows

Moogsoft, Condé Nast, and Cuemby are some of the popular companies that use Amazon EKS, whereas Docker Cloud is used by DNT, Firecracker, and MetricAid. Amazon EKS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 27 company stacks & 8 developers stacks; compared to Docker Cloud, which is listed in 21 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

        What are some alternatives to Amazon EKS and Docker Cloud?
        kops
        It helps you create, destroy, upgrade and maintain production-grade, highly available, Kubernetes clusters from the command line. AWS (Amazon Web Services) is currently officially supported, with GCE in beta support , and VMware vSphere in alpha, and other platforms planned.
        Kubernetes
        Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
        Amazon EC2 Container Service
        Amazon EC2 Container Service lets you launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to query the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, EBS volumes and IAM roles.
        Google Kubernetes Engine
        Container Engine takes care of provisioning and maintaining the underlying virtual machine cluster, scaling your application, and operational logistics like logging, monitoring, and health management.
        AWS Fargate
        AWS Fargate is a technology for Amazon ECS and EKS* that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers.

        We decided to leverage Docker Cloud for our public facing APIs. This allows us to cleanly scale our nodes & containers without being vendor locked to a specific PaaS.
