rkt vs Vagrant Cloud: What are the differences?

What is rkt? App Container runtime. Rocket is a cli for running App Containers. The goal of rocket is to be composable, secure, and fast.

What is Vagrant Cloud? Share, discover, and create Vagrant environments. Vagrant Cloud pairs with Vagrant to enable access, insight and collaboration across teams, as well as to bring exposure to community contributions and development environments.

rkt and Vagrant Cloud belong to "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by rkt are:

  • Composable. All tools for downloading, installing, and running containers should be well integrated, but independent and composable.
  • Security. Isolation should be pluggable, and the crypto primitives for strong trust, image auditing and application identity should exist from day one.
  • Image distribution. Discovery of container images should be simple and facilitate a federated namespace, and distributed retrieval. This opens the possibility of alternative protocols, such as BitTorrent, and deployments to private environments without the requirement of a registry.

On the other hand, Vagrant Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Vagrant Share: A single command to share your local Vagrant environment to anyone in the world
  • Box Distribution: Vagrant integration provides flexible versioning and support for private or community boxes
  • Discover Boxes: Start new projects faster using the right box. Find trusted and top-used community boxes

rkt is an open source tool with 8.68K GitHub stars and 829 GitHub forks. Here's a link to rkt's open source repository on GitHub.

      Docker
      The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
      LXC
      LXC is a userspace interface for the Linux kernel containment features. Through a powerful API and simple tools, it lets Linux users easily create and manage system or application containers.
      LXD
      LXD isn't a rewrite of LXC, in fact it's building on top of LXC to provide a new, better user experience. Under the hood, LXD uses LXC through liblxc and its Go binding to create and manage the containers. It's basically an alternative to LXC's tools and distribution template system with the added features that come from being controllable over the network.
      Studio 3T
      It's the only MongoDB tool that provides three ways to explore data - Table, Tree, and JSON View - alongside powerful features like query autocompletion, polyglot code generation, a stage-by-stage aggregation query builder, multi-format import and export, SQL query support, and more.
      OpenVZ
      Virtuozzo leverages OpenVZ as its core of a virtualization solution offered by Virtuozzo company. Virtuozzo is optimized for hosters and offers hypervisor (VMs in addition to containers), distributed cloud storage, dedicated support, management tools, and easy installation.
