Docker Immutable Workstation vs Flocker: What are the differences?
Developers describe Docker Immutable Workstation as "Docker based portable Workstation". Quite simply, I can easily control the dev environment, rebuild it at will, and run programs "on my latop" when they are not installed or configured on the laptop. In fact I think the best part of this is configuration for my whole dev machine is sgtored on github, and can be re-created anywhere easily. With the volume mounted, I can then use emacs / konsole running inside a container, and adjust files that are stored on my local laptop. On the other hand, Flocker is detailed as "Run your databases in Docker and make them as portable as the rest of your app". Flocker is a data volume manager and multi-host Docker cluster management tool. With it you can control your data using the same tools you use for your stateless applications. This means that you can run your databases, queues and key-value stores in Docker and move them around as easily as the rest of your app.
Docker Immutable Workstation and Flocker can be categorized as "Container" tools.
Docker Immutable Workstation and Flocker are both open source tools. It seems that Flocker with 3.19K GitHub stars and 287 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Docker Immutable Workstation with 459 GitHub stars and 20 GitHub forks.
