Docker Compose vs Kubecost: What are the differences?

Docker Compose: Define and run multi-container applications with Docker. With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running; Kubecost: Optimize your Kubernetes. Created by a team of ex-Google cloud engineers / product managers that came together after seeing the challenges from managing microservice-based infrastructure at scale.

Docker Compose and Kubecost can be categorized as "Container" tools.

Docker Compose and Kubecost are both open source tools. It seems that Docker Compose with 16.6K GitHub stars and 2.56K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Kubecost with 485 GitHub stars and 30 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Docker Compose and Kubecost?
        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
        The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
        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.
        Helm
        Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
        Ansible
        Ansible is an IT automation tool. It can configure systems, deploy software, and orchestrate more advanced IT tasks such as continuous deployments or zero downtime rolling updates. Ansible’s goals are foremost those of simplicity and maximum ease of use.
