Docker Cloud vs Hyper: 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, Hyper is detailed as "On-Demand Container, Per-Second Billing". Hyper.sh is a secure container hosting service. What makes it different from AWS (Amazon Web Services) is that you don't start servers, but start docker images directly from Docker Hub or other registries.
Docker Cloud and Hyper can be categorized as "Containers as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Docker Cloud are:
- Simplify Docker Provisioning
- Deploy Apps Anywhere
- Automate Your Developer Workflows
On the other hand, Hyper provides the following key features:
- Hyper is able to launch instances in sub-second. Also, Hyper requires the minimal resource footprint: ~12MB mem
- Hyper is immune from the "shared kernel" problem in container
- Hyper is hypervisor agnostic

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.
