Docker vs Boxfuse: What are the differences?
Developers describe Docker as "Enterprise Container Platform for High-Velocity Innovation". The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere. On the other hand, Boxfuse is detailed as "Immutable Infrastructure Made Easy". It generates minimal images for your application in seconds. They boot directly on virtual hardware. There is no classic OS and no container runtime.
Docker and Boxfuse can be categorized as "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" tools.
Some of the features offered by Docker are:
- Integrated developer tools
- open, portable images
- shareable, reusable apps
On the other hand, Boxfuse provides the following key features:
- Images measured in MB, not GB
- Deep and powerful integration
- Secure and production-ready by design
Docker is an open source tool with 54.5K GitHub stars and 15.7K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker's open source repository on GitHub.
