Docker Machine vs Flocker: What are the differences?

What is Docker Machine? Machine management for a container-centric world. Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.

What is Flocker? 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 Machine and Flocker can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

"Easy docker hosts management" is the top reason why over 12 developers like Docker Machine, while over 3 developers mention "Open-Source" as the leading cause for choosing Flocker.

Docker Machine and Flocker are both open source tools. Docker Machine with 5.39K GitHub stars and 1.56K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Flocker with 3.19K GitHub stars and 287 GitHub forks.
