Fleet vs Helios: What are the differences?

What is Fleet? 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.

What is Helios? Docker container orchestration platform, by Spotify. Helios is a Docker orchestration platform for deploying and managing containers across an entire fleet of servers. Helios provides a HTTP API as well as a command-line client to interact with servers running your containers.

Fleet and Helios belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Fleet are:

  • Deploy docker containers on arbitrary hosts in a cluster
  • Distribute services across a cluster using machine-level anti-affinity
  • Maintain N instances of a service, re-scheduling on machine failure

On the other hand, Helios provides the following key features:

  • Helios is pragmatic.
  • Helios fits into the way you already do ops.
  • Hihgly scalable

Fleet and Helios are both open source tools. Fleet with 2.45K GitHub stars and 309 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Helios with 2K GitHub stars and 229 GitHub forks.

          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.
          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.
          Docker Machine
          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.
