Docker vs OSGi: What are the differences?

Developers describe Docker as "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. On the other hand, OSGi is detailed as "The Dynamic Module System for Java". It is a Java framework for developing and deploying modular software programs and libraries. It provides a vendor-independent, standards-based approach to modularizing Java software applications and infrastructure.

Docker can be classified as a tool in the "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" category, while OSGi is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Docker is an open source tool with 54.4K GitHub stars and 15.7K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker's open source repository on GitHub.

Spotify, Pinterest, and Twitter are some of the popular companies that use Docker, whereas OSGi is used by Liferay, Netcentric, and Enonic AS. Docker has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4806 company stacks & 18493 developers stacks; compared to OSGi, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.

lxd/lxc and Docker aren't congruent so this comparison needs a more detailed look; but in short I can say: the lxd-integrated administration of storage including zfs with its snapshot capabilities as well as the system container (multi-process) approach of lxc vs. the limited single-process container approach of Docker is the main reason I chose lxd over Docker.

      What are some alternatives to Docker and OSGi?
      LXC
      LXC is a userspace interface for the Linux kernel containment features. Through a powerful API and simple tools, it lets Linux users easily create and manage system or application containers.
      rkt
      Rocket is a cli for running App Containers. The goal of rocket is to be composable, secure, and fast.
      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.
      Cloud Foundry
      Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications.
      Vagrant
      Vagrant provides the framework and configuration format to create and manage complete portable development environments. These development environments can live on your computer or in the cloud, and are portable between Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
