Centurion vs Weave: 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; Weave: Weave creates a virtual network that connects Docker containers deployed across multiple hosts. Weave can traverse firewalls and operate in partially connected networks. Traffic can be encrypted, allowing hosts to be connected across an untrusted network. With weave you can easily construct applications consisting of multiple containers, running anywhere.

Centurion and Weave 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, Weave provides the following key features:

  • Virtual Ethernet Switch
  • Application isolation
  • Security

Centurion and Weave are both open source tools. It seems that Weave with 5.57K GitHub stars and 517 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Centurion with 1.72K GitHub stars and 111 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Centurion and Weave?
        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.
        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.
        Docker Machine
        Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.
