Docker Swarm vs Fleet: What are the differences?
Developers describe Docker Swarm as "Native clustering for Docker. Turn a pool of Docker hosts into a single, virtual host". 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. On the other hand, Fleet is detailed as "Container management and deployment for your cluster". Fleet is a low-level cluster engine that feels like a distributed init system. With fleet, you can treat your CoreOS cluster as if it shared a single init system.
Docker Swarm and Fleet can be categorized as "Container" tools.
Docker Swarm and Fleet are both open source tools. It seems that Docker Swarm with 5.63K GitHub stars and 1.11K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Fleet with 2.45K GitHub stars and 309 GitHub forks.
