Docker Compose vs AWS Copilot: What are the differences?

Developers describe Docker Compose as "Define and run multi-container applications with Docker". With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running. On the other hand, AWS Copilot is detailed as "A tool for developers to build, release and operate production ready containerized applications". It is a tool for developers to develop, release, and operate production-ready containerized applications on Amazon ECS. From getting started, pushing to staging and releasing to production, Copilot can help manage the entire lifecycle of your application development.

Docker Compose and AWS Copilot belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

Docker Compose is an open source tool with 20.2K GitHub stars and 3.28K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker Compose's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to AWS Copilot and Docker Compose?
      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.
      Helm
      Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
      Rancher
      Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
      Spring Cloud
      It provides tools for developers to quickly build some of the common patterns in distributed systems.
      Docker Swarm
      Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
