Cloud 66 vs Rancher: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cloud 66 as "Full Stack Container Management as a Service". Cloud 66 makes Ops easy for developers. It is a single tool built for developers to build, configure and maintain servers and Docker containers on your own servers. On the other hand, Rancher is detailed as "Open Source Platform for Running a Private Container Service". 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.

Cloud 66 belongs to "Continuous Deployment" category of the tech stack, while Rancher can be primarily classified under "Container Tools".

Some of the features offered by Cloud 66 are:

  • Provision — build your infrastructure from your code.
  • Backup — peace of mind with regular database backups for all your databases.
  • Security — Simple firewall management & DDoS protection without the stress.

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

  • Manage Hosts, Deploy Containers, Monitor Resources
  • User Management & Collaboration
  • Native Docker APIs & Tools

"Easy provisioning" is the primary reason why developers consider Cloud 66 over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking Rancher.

Rancher is an open source tool with 11.9K GitHub stars and 1.34K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Rancher's open source repository on GitHub.

    Review ofRancherRancher
    1. Consume too much unnecessary resource by just running rancher agent alone;
    2. Hard to recover from system failure
    3. Bad performance of load balancing (compare to dokcer swarm built-in LB or others).

    The whole infrastructure is managed through Rancher. It provides a simple interface to all the underlying tools - Docker, HAProxy (automatically configures load balancer from the containers).
