Docker Cloud vs Jenkins: What are the differences?

What is Docker Cloud? 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.

What is Jenkins? An extendable open source continuous integration server. In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.

Docker Cloud and Jenkins are primarily classified as "Containers as a Service" and "Continuous Integration" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Docker Cloud are:

  • Simplify Docker Provisioning
  • Deploy Apps Anywhere
  • Automate Your Developer Workflows

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

  • Easy installation
  • Easy configuration
  • Change set support

"Easy to use" is the primary reason why developers consider Docker Cloud over the competitors, whereas "Hosted internally" was stated as the key factor in picking Jenkins.

Jenkins is an open source tool with 13.2K GitHub stars and 5.43K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Jenkins's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Jenkins has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1753 company stacks & 1479 developers stacks; compared to Docker Cloud, which is listed in 21 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Docker Cloud and Jenkins?
    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.

    All of our pull requests are automatically tested using Jenkins' integration with GitHub, and we provision and deploy our servers using Jenkins' interface. This is integrated with HipChat, immediately notifying us if anything goes wrong with a deployment.

    Jenkins is our go-to devops automation tool. We use it for automated test builds, all the way up to server updates and deploys. It really helps maintain our homegrown continuous-integration suite. It even does our blue/green deploys.

    • Continuous Deploy
    • Dev stage: autodeploy by trigger push request from 'develop' branch of Gitlab
    • Staging and production stages: Build and rollback quicly with Ansistrano playbook
    • Sending messages of job results to Chatwork.

    Currently serves as the location that our QA team builds various automated testing jobs.

    At one point we were using it for builds, but we ended up migrating away from them to Code Pipelines.
