ContainerShip vs Rancher: What are the differences?

Developers describe ContainerShip as "Multi-Cloud Docker Hosting Made Simple". ContainerShip is an open source hosting platform that makes it simple to build, scale and manage containerized web infrastructure. It supports applications with persistent data needs, has built in disaster recovery, and lets you move between clouds with a click. 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.

ContainerShip and Rancher are primarily classified as "Containers as a Service" and "Container" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by ContainerShip are:

  • Orchestration
  • Service Discovery
  • Internal DNS

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

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

ContainerShip and Rancher are both open source tools. It seems that Rancher with 11.8K GitHub stars and 1.31K forks on GitHub has more adoption than ContainerShip with 239 GitHub stars and 29 GitHub forks.
