dockersh vs Flocker: What are the differences?

Developers describe dockersh as "A shell which places users into individual docker containers". dockersh is designed to be used as a login shell on machines with multiple interactive users. When a user invokes dockersh, it will bring up a Docker container (if not already running), and then spawn a new interactive shell in the container's namespace. 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.

dockersh and Flocker can be categorized as "Container" tools.

dockersh 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 dockersh with 1.28K GitHub stars and 76 GitHub forks.

What are some alternatives to dockersh and Flocker?
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.
Docker Compose
With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
Helm
Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
Rancher
Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
Docker Swarm
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.
