So you know you want to learn about container orchestration, but which platform do you hitch your IT horse to? Docker Swarm and Kubernetes are popular choices (especially the latter), but what criteria do you use to choose between the two?
In this post, Nick Janetakis breaks down the pros and cons of each orchestration platform. He goes into specifics, as well as linking to tutorials, but the basic breakdown is Swarm is better out of the box with the benefit of being build directly into the Docker CLI. Kubernetes shines with better maturity, managed solutions on all major public cloud platforms, and the proven ability to scale.
Ultimately, Nick recommends getting to know both in practice a little better before making a firm commitment.
