Flocker vs Kubernetes: What are the differences?
What is Flocker? 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.
What is Kubernetes? Manage a cluster of Linux containers as a single system to accelerate Dev and simplify Ops. 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.
Flocker and Kubernetes belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.
"Open-Source" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Flocker, while over 134 developers mention "Leading docker container management solution" as the leading cause for choosing Kubernetes.
Flocker and Kubernetes are both open source tools. It seems that Kubernetes with 55K GitHub stars and 19.1K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Flocker with 3.19K GitHub stars and 287 GitHub forks.
