Docker Cloud vs Eureka: What are the differences?
Developers describe Docker Cloud as "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. On the other hand, Eureka is detailed as "AWS Service registry for resilient mid-tier load balancing and failover". Eureka is a REST (Representational State Transfer) based service that is primarily used in the AWS cloud for locating services for the purpose of load balancing and failover of middle-tier servers.
Docker Cloud can be classified as a tool in the "Containers as a Service" category, while Eureka is grouped under "Open Source Service Discovery".
"Easy to use" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Docker Cloud, while over 15 developers mention "Easy setup and integration with spring-cloud " as the leading cause for choosing Eureka.
Eureka is an open source tool with 7.98K GitHub stars and 2.2K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Eureka's open source repository on GitHub.

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.
