Conan vs Kubernetes: What are the differences?
What is Conan? C/C++ package manager. Install or build your own packages for any platform. Conan also allows you to run your own server easily from the command line.
What is Kubernetes? Manage a cluster of Linux containers as a single system to accelerate Dev and simplify Ops. 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.
Conan belongs to "Hosted Package Repository" category of the tech stack, while Kubernetes can be primarily classified under "Container Tools".
Some of the features offered by Conan are:
- Dependencies and package management for developers
- Source code and binaries
On the other hand, Kubernetes provides the following key features:
- Lightweight, simple and accessible
- Built for a multi-cloud world, public, private or hybrid
- Highly modular, designed so that all of its components are easily swappable
Conan and Kubernetes are both open source tools. It seems that Kubernetes with 54.2K GitHub stars and 18.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Conan with 2.9K GitHub stars and 381 GitHub forks.

It's a little bit complex to onboard, but once you grasp all the different concepts the platform is really powerful, and infrastructure stops being an issue.
Service discovery, auto-recovery, scaling and orchestration are just a few of the features you get.
Just tinkering with it for personal use at this stage based on positive experience using it at work. Plan to use it for high traffic distributed systems if not using a managed hosting service like Heroku, AWS Lambda, or Google Cloud Functions. Reasons for using instead of these alternatives would be cheaper cost at higher scale.
Good existential question. Kubernetes is painful in the extreme - especially when combined with Ansible. The layers of indirection are truly mind altering. But hey - containers are kewl!
Our developer experience system is on Kubernetes (Google Kubernetes Engine at the moment). We would like to expand our Kubernetes clusters over other Kubernetes engine.
Kubernetes is used for managing microclusters within our AWS infrastructure. This allows us to deploy new infrastructure in seconds.
