Azure Container Service vs Cloud9 IDE: What are the differences?

What is Azure Container Service? Deploy and manage containers using the tools you choose. Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, the number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools, and Container Service handles everything else.

What is Cloud9 IDE? Your development environment, in the cloud. Cloud9 provides a development environment in the cloud. Cloud9 enables developers to get started with coding immediately with pre-setup environments called workspaces, collaborate with their peers with collaborative coding features, and build web apps with features like live preview and browser compatibility testing. It supports more than 40 languages, with class A support for PHP, Ruby, Python, JavaScript/Node.js, and Go.

Azure Container Service and Cloud9 IDE are primarily classified as "Containers as a Service" and "Cloud IDE" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Azure Container Service are:

  • Create a container hosting solution optimized for Azure
  • Scale and orchestrate applications using Apache Mesos or Docker Swarm
  • Use popular open source, client-side tooling

On the other hand, Cloud9 IDE provides the following key features:

  • Real-time collaboration and chat
  • Connect via SSH and FTP
  • Code Completion (suggestions)
