Centurion vs Kubestone: 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, Kubestone is detailed as "Benchmarking Operator for Kubernetes". It is a benchmarking Operator that can evaluate the performance of Kubernetes installations. Benchmarks runs are defined as Custom Resources and executed in the cluster using Kubernetes resources: Pods, Jobs, Deployments and Services.
Centurion and Kubestone 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, Kubestone provides the following key features:
- Supports common set of benchmarks to measure: CPU, Disk, Network and Application performance
- Fine-grained control over Kubernetes Scheduling primitives: Affinity, Anti-Affinity, Tolerations, Storage Classes and Node Selection
- Cloud Native: Benchmarks runs are defined as Custom Resources and executed in the cluster using Kubernetes resources: Pods, Jobs, Deployments and Services
