Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Introduction With the rise of the containerization technology and increased attention from enterprises and technologists in general, more and more containerized applications have been deployed to the cloud. Moreover, research conducted by 451 Research predicts that the application container market will grow dramatically through 2020, which will continue to expand the number of containerized applications in the cloud.
When the scale and complexity of production-critical containers rises, container orchestration tools step into the picture and fill an important gap in the container management toolbox.
Kubernetes vs Docker: What's the difference? Read our introduction to Docker and Kubernetes, and the pressures of delivering reliable applications at scale.
This article covers some of the major advantages and disadvantages of two of the most popular container orchestration tools: Kubernetes and Docker Swarm. We describe each piece of software and then dive in to compare across different features.
