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)

"Easy to setup, very agnostic" is the primary reason why developers consider Azure Container Service over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking Cloud9 IDE.

According to the StackShare community, Cloud9 IDE has a broader approval, being mentioned in 28 company stacks & 40 developers stacks; compared to Azure Container Service, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.

    Reviews of Azure Container Service and Cloud9 IDE
    Review ofCloud9 IDECloud9 IDE
    • I use a Cloud9 micro plan and connect SSH workspaces to Google Compute Engine instances.

    • For me, Cloud 9 has good documentation, and it's relatively quick to install on my Debian instances using the Cloud 9 install script.

    • I prefer a cloud-based IDE since I don't want to spend resources on my local or remote machines running or maintaining an IDE.

    • As of Dec 2015, Cloud9 doesn't support debugging in Python. However, this hasn't been a problem for me since I use pdb for debugging and pytest for testing. I use the IDE mostly for code navigation, autocomplete, and managing packages with many files.

    Review ofCloud9 IDECloud9 IDE

    I've tried to use Cloud9, but I really don't like it. They say it has real-time collaboration, and it does — but only for 2 people, because the backend shuts everything down and lets nobody access anything if more than 2 people want to use it. The UI looks pretty bad, Cloud9 is completely inaccessible from mobile devices, and it freezes my computer because it uses so much memory. It's free and they will host your files for free, but I much prefer GitHub.

    Review ofCloud9 IDECloud9 IDE

    I don't like Cloud9 because when several people(even 4) are on the workspace, the entire thing lags out. Really frustrating

    I use the clound9 IDE mainly in my training courses: Students don't need to install anything on their Laptops to participate in the live exercises.

    I use Cloud9 as my preferred Rails development environment. It saves me a lot time and trouble compared to developing locally (I run Windows).

    Quick testing of frameworks without having to install on my own PC.

    Very useful when you cannot use your own computer.
