Docker Cloud vs IBM Containers: 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, IBM Containers is detailed as "Fully managed Kubernetes Offering by IBM". Managed Kubernetes offering to deliver powerful tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications all while leveraging Services including Watson, Weather, IoT, etc.

Docker Cloud and IBM Containers 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, IBM Containers provides the following key features:

  • Managed Kubernetes with simplified cluster management from IBM
  • Cluster isolation choice (virtual - shared or dedicated compute and bare metal)
  • Vulnerability Advisor introspects every layer in each image for known vulnerabilities and configuration weaknesses, as well as live container scanning

        What are some alternatives to Docker Cloud and IBM Containers?
        Cloud Foundry
        Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications.
        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.
        Docker Swarm
        Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
        Docker Hub
        It is the world's easiest way to create, manage, and deliver your teams' container applications. It is the perfect home for your teams' applications.
        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.
