Compose vs Docker Compose: What are the differences?
What is Compose? We host databases for busy devs: production-ready, cloud-hosted, open source. Compose makes it easy to spin up multiple open source databases with just one click. Deploy MongoDB for production, take Redis out for a performance test drive, or spin up RethinkDB in development before rolling it out to production.
What is Docker Compose? Define and run multi-container applications with Docker. 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.
Compose and Docker Compose are primarily classified as "MongoDB Hosting" and "Container" tools respectively.
"Simple to set up" is the top reason why over 41 developers like Compose, while over 111 developers mention "Multi-container descriptor" as the leading cause for choosing Docker Compose.
Docker Compose is an open source tool with 16.6K GitHub stars and 2.56K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker Compose's open source repository on GitHub.
StackShare, Typeform, and CircleCI are some of the popular companies that use Docker Compose, whereas Compose is used by Accenture, Artsy, and FashionUnited.
