Azure Container Service vs IBM Containers: 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 IBM Containers? Fully managed Kubernetes Offering by IBM. Managed Kubernetes offering to deliver powerful tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications all while leveraging Services including Watson, Weather, IoT, etc.

Azure Container Service and IBM Containers belong to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack.

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, IBM Containers provides the following key features:

  • Managed Kubernetes with simplified cluster management from IBM
  • Cluster isolation choice (virtual - shared or dedicated compute and bare metal)
  • Vulnerability Advisor introspects every layer in each image for known vulnerabilities and configuration weaknesses, as well as live container scanning
