Rancher vs KubeAdvisor: What are the differences?

What is Rancher? Open Source Platform for Running a Private Container Service. 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.

What is KubeAdvisor? It helps DevOps adopt best practices for Kubernetes. It helps teams adopt best practices to accelerate the adoption of Kubernetes, and optimize their existing stack, with machine learning. It scans K8s to make infrastructure and cloud-native applications reliable, resilient, and observable.

Rancher and KubeAdvisor belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Rancher are:

  • Manage Hosts, Deploy Containers, Monitor Resources
  • User Management & Collaboration
  • Native Docker APIs & Tools

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

  • Performance by continuously watching throttled containers/apps and recommending improvements
  • Utilization by comparing used resources with the available capacity to reallocate them based on variable workloads
  • Cost Optimization by suggesting changes at the VM level to save money in case of cloud infrastructure or identify the best configurations if you are running Kubernetes on-prem

Rancher is an open source tool with 13.7K GitHub stars and 1.61K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Rancher's open source repository on GitHub.

        What are some alternatives to KubeAdvisor and Rancher?
        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.
        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.
        Helm
        Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
        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.

        Review ofRancherRancher
        1. Consume too much unnecessary resource by just running rancher agent alone;
        2. Hard to recover from system failure
        3. Bad performance of load balancing (compare to dokcer swarm built-in LB or others).

        The whole infrastructure is managed through Rancher. It provides a simple interface to all the underlying tools - Docker, HAProxy (automatically configures load balancer from the containers).

        Currently looking to move to Swarm or Kubernetes due to a few issues I have with Rancher.

        We use Rancher for container orchestration and automated deployment pipelines.
