Centurion vs Docker Immutable Workstation: What are the differences?
Centurion: A mass deployment tool for Docker fleets. A deployment tool for Docker, made by New Relic. Takes containers from a Docker registry and runs them on a fleet of hosts with the correct environment variables, host volume mappings, and port mappings. Supports rolling deployments out of the box, and makes it easy to ship applications to Docker servers. New Relic is using it to run their production infrastructure; Docker Immutable Workstation: Docker based portable Workstation. Quite simply, I can easily control the dev environment, rebuild it at will, and run programs "on my latop" when they are not installed or configured on the laptop. In fact I think the best part of this is configuration for my whole dev machine is sgtored on github, and can be re-created anywhere easily. With the volume mounted, I can then use emacs / konsole running inside a container, and adjust files that are stored on my local laptop.
Centurion and Docker Immutable Workstation can be categorized as "Container" tools.
Centurion and Docker Immutable Workstation are both open source tools. It seems that Centurion with 1.72K GitHub stars and 111 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Docker Immutable Workstation with 459 GitHub stars and 20 GitHub forks.
