Cloud Foundry vs Docker Cloud: What are the differences?

Cloud Foundry: Deploy and scale applications in seconds on your choice of private or public cloud. Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications; Docker Cloud: A hosted service for Docker container management and deployment. Docker Cloud is the best way to deploy and manage Dockerized applications. Docker Cloud makes it easy for new Docker users to manage and deploy the full spectrum of applications, from single container apps to distributed microservices stacks, to any cloud or on-premises infrastructure.

Cloud Foundry belongs to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Docker Cloud can be primarily classified under "Containers as a Service".

Some of the features offered by Cloud Foundry are:

  • Application and services centric lifecycle API
  • High performance dynamic routing
  • Buildpack support

On the other hand, Docker Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Simplify Docker Provisioning
  • Deploy Apps Anywhere
  • Automate Your Developer Workflows

Cloud Foundry is an open source tool with 605 GitHub stars and 532 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Cloud Foundry's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Docker Cloud has a broader approval, being mentioned in 21 company stacks & 6 developers stacks; compared to Cloud Foundry, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 13 developer stacks.

      We decided to leverage Docker Cloud for our public facing APIs. This allows us to cleanly scale our nodes & containers without being vendor locked to a specific PaaS.

      Easy host and monitor the application on the cloud, using a platform that is hight integrated with Spring Framework, but is also agnostic of technology
