Docker vs Eucalyptus: What are the differences?
What is Docker? Enterprise Container Platform for High-Velocity Innovation. 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.
What is Eucalyptus? *Open source AWS compatible private cloud *. Eucalyptus is open source software for building private, AWS-compatible IT, QA, and developer clouds. It makes it easy to deliver cloud computing, just like AWS, from within your data center.
Docker and Eucalyptus are primarily classified as "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" and "Open Source Cloud" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Docker are:
- Integrated developer tools
- open, portable images
- shareable, reusable apps
On the other hand, Eucalyptus provides the following key features:
- Hybrid Cloud Management - Launch instances, create snapshots and manage autoscaling groups in either your private or public clouds from a single environment. Now the same powerful and easy to use self-service interface that provisions and manages Eucalyptus Cloud resources can manage your AWS cloud resources.
- AWS Compatibility - Eucalyptus provides industry-leading compatibility with popular Amazon Web Services (AWS) APIs including EC2, S3, Elastic Block Store (EBS), Identity and Access Management (IAM), Auto Scaling, Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), and CloudWatch.
- Compute - Eucalyptus allows you to use industry-standard servers, storage, networking, and virtualization technologies to deliver cost-effective, AWS-compatible cloud services in your datacenter. Eucalyptus is compatible with AWS’s EC2 and allows you to easily deploy compute resources and efficiently increase or decrease compute capacity based on application demands.
