        What are some alternatives to Kubenav 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.
