Centurion vs Kitematic: What are the differences?

Developers describe Centurion as "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. On the other hand, Kitematic is detailed as "The easiest way to start using Docker on your Mac". Simple Docker App management for Mac OS X.

Centurion and Kitematic can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

Some of the features offered by Centurion are:

  • Rake application tasks and dependencies
  • Talk to a fleet of Docker servers at once
  • Does rolling deployment

On the other hand, Kitematic provides the following key features:

  • Mac App with GUI for Docker
  • Create images from any folder with a Dockerfile in it
  • Configure environment variables

Centurion and Kitematic are both open source tools. It seems that Kitematic with 10.5K GitHub stars and 1.26K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Centurion with 1.72K GitHub stars and 111 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Centurion and Kitematic?
    Kubernetes
    Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
    Docker Compose
    With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
    Helm
    Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
    Rancher
    Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
    Docker Swarm
    Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
