Google Kubernetes Engine vs Orchard: What are the differences?

Developers describe Google Kubernetes Engine as "Deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications on Kubernetes, powered by Google Cloud". Container Engine takes care of provisioning and maintaining the underlying virtual machine cluster, scaling your application, and operational logistics like logging, monitoring, and health management. On the other hand, Orchard is detailed as "We host your Docker containers". Use Docker to run anything you can think of in 2 seconds flat without having to setup or manage servers.

Google Kubernetes Engine and Orchard can be categorized as "Containers as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Google Kubernetes Engine are:

  • Docker support - Improve the predictability of your deployments with Docker containers. Containers make it easy to deploy applications across environments.
  • Better ops - Give ops a better system, starting with a managed compute cluster. Container Engine takes care of provisioning and maintaining the underlying virtual machines and operational logistics like logging, monitoring, and health management.
  • Declarative management - Use declarative syntax to define your application requirements. Container Engine will actively manage your application, ensuring your containers are running and scheduling additional as needed.

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

  • Run commands
  • Run daemons and databases
  • 100% custom environment

      What are some alternatives to Google Kubernetes Engine and Orchard?
      Google App Engine
      Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.
      Red Hat OpenShift
      OpenShift is Red Hat's Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. OpenShift is an application platform in the cloud where application developers and teams can build, test, deploy, and run their applications.
      Google Compute Engine
      Google Compute Engine is a service that provides virtual machines that run on Google infrastructure. Google Compute Engine offers scale, performance, and value that allows you to easily launch large compute clusters on Google's infrastructure. There are no upfront investments and you can run up to thousands of virtual CPUs on a system that has been designed from the ground up to be fast, and to offer strong consistency of performance.
      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.
      Amazon EC2 Container Service
      Amazon EC2 Container Service lets you launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to query the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, EBS volumes and IAM roles.
