Description

What is 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.

What is 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.

What is Container Factory?

container-factory produces Docker images from tarballs of application source code. It accepts archives with Dockerfiles, but if your application's language is supported, it can automatically add a suitable Dockerfile.
